AC Done, Terrified of T!
I finished my last round of AC (adriamycin/cyclophosphamide) and I’m scheduled for my first round of paclitaxel this week… and I’m terrified. I have a huge fear of allergic reactions and I keep seeing people post about how they had reactions to Taxol and couldn’t breathe. I’m also scared of neuropathy (I’m an artist, I need to feel my fingers!) and I’m having so much bone/joint/muscle pain from the Lapelga shots that I’m petrified of the paclitaxel because people keep saying it causes them bone and joint pain. Im really, really anxious about it, to the point that I’m ready to call it at the halfway point and move on to radiation.
What was your experience with paclitaxel like? Did you have a reaction? How were your side effects compared to the AC (if you had it)
