Good morning, I am 47 years old and was diagnosed in December. I had a lumpectomy - 1 cm with clean margins, they did a sentinal lymph node biopsy and after a special test found microscopic cells so I went in for a 2nd surgery to have my lumph nodes removed - they were clear. I have had 3 doses of Adriomyacin (sp)- the 3rd dose put me in the ER and they decided not to give me a 4th. I have had my first treatment with Taxol and the pain was overwhelming. Is there anything anyone has used to help with the pain of Taxol? I'm afraid to have my other treatments. I can't help but wonder if something that makes me so sick is also hurting me. I just moved her 11 months ago, was married in September and have no family close. I feel so alone in this. Thank you for listening.
