I just started Taxol on May 9th of this year. I had had surgery 1 month and 6 days before i started Taxol. I am almost bald already. I feel like i am getting crushed for the 2 or 3 days after I get the Taxol. I am just wondering if this is common.

Taxol was really hard on me as well. I have bad osteoarthritis and it just did a number on my bones. You'll get into a body rythmn and know what to expect each treatment. Your oncologist will do everything to make you comfortable during your treatments. I wish you luck. Listen to your body and rest when it tells you to rest. Do you have Dr. Susan Love's Breast Cancer book?
