Hi Everyone,

I finished by 4 treatments of AC and have had 1 Taxol treatment with 11 more to go. My question to this group is how did you balance work with treatments? I'm having a very hard time concentrating and exhausted. I just don't know how much longer I can keep going at this pace.

Hello, My treatment regiment is similar to yours. I am have Taxol for 12 weeks with carboplatin every 3rd week in addition. Following that I will have AC every other week for 8 weeks. I have had only 2 treatments so far. I made the decision to take a leave of absence. For me it wouldn’t have been too much with the commute and also exposure to many illnesses. I’m fortunate to able stay home. I have not had an easy time handling the SE. If our are able try to stay home or maybe part time. Make sure you get your rest
