Hey everyone! I start Taxol next Friday. I see lots of old posts about how much pain people have had but nothing recent. Have any of you done Taxol recently and how did you do? Any suggestions?
I did FAC last year about this time and didn't have much trouble with that. I was diagnosed in 2004, had a mast. with reconstruction and then in 2009 - diagnosed on the same side. They just never checked that side after the mast. SO it had grown into my sternum and now I have bone only mets, and plenty of 'em! '
I keep flunking out of 'hormone therapy'. I've done Tamoxifen, Exemestane, Faslodex and Affinitor/Exemestane.
The FAC did a pretty good job of calming things down. I'm hoping the Taxol does even better.
Give me you good news and your bad news - it's OK to scare me - I'm not good with surprizes! :)
