Hey there! I didn't see a separate group for weekly Taxol treatment; thought I'd start one just so we can compare notes with each other......I always learn so much from everyone! Just finished treatment #3 this week, and so far my side effects have been loss of taste and fatigue, especially day 3-5. This has been easier on me then A/C treatment so far.
What are your experiences?

I am in the BGC for my 11th of 12. Sounds like Borg name if anyone is geeky enough to know what a Borg is. Getting the Benadryl fog brain now. My feet aren't tingling at all today. I know it will come back worse this time but since I am this far along I am hopeful that the neuropath will disappear quickly. I was almost glad to come up here. I work in a clinic down stairs from where I get chemo so it is very convenient. I worked up until my chemo appointment. We were so busy today that I was happy to escape. It is peaceful up here. The weird thing is I may actually miss this two hours of peace and quiet in a way. I get to play my words with friends and scrambles. If anyone is geeky enough to play those games and wants to join me for a game lemme know and I will give you my game name!

You guys have too much fun. I just end up watching TV or talking to my DH. Tomorrow is a very long day. Blood work and echo in the morning and infusion late afternoon, they usually make me wait for a few hours for port access and a few more hours for infusion. They are very slow in getting started. So will probably be done around 7.00 :(
Will post on Wed to let every know how it went.
