Today was my 9th infusion of Taxol maintenance. Prior to that, I had six months of Taxol and Carbo, so I have been on Taxol (same dose) for a long time (14 months).
I have been fortunate to tolerate it so well. Very little neuropathy, which is normally the big bug-a-boo.
I have recently noticed that two of my toenails are turning purple, at the base. I know that Taxol can damage nails, and even cause them to fall off. Is this a permanent condition, or will they return to normal, once I'm off the Taxol (end of January)? Has anyone else experienced a similar reaction?
