Looking For Anyone With Experience With Abraxane

Looking For Anyone With Experience With Abraxane

My second opinion doctor mentioned that if the Kadcyla stops working, he would put me back on the Herceptin and add something called Abraxane. I'm curious to see who has experience with this and what kind of side effects to expect. He says it's not as bad as docetaxel but I'm wondering if you still get sick, lose hair, etc. Anyone have experience with this?

Hair Loss During Chemo

Hair Loss During Chemo

I am in treatment right now and I have one chemo round left. Im doing the TC cocktail. (taxotare?) I had my head shaved last month and now I wear a pretty nice wig but I find myself having little panic attacks when I look at my bald head. When does hair growth start? Is it totally after chemo is done or is it able to sprout some peach fuzz during? I am grateful that I am able to tolerate the chemo so well, but I will be honest that I do have a fear that my hair won't grow back. I see on Facebook… read more

Does Anyone Have Tumor Markers Or CtDNA Tests Done Routinely To Monitor For Recurrence Or Metastasis? The Lack Of Surveillance Bothers Me

Does Anyone Have Tumor Markers Or CtDNA Tests Done Routinely To Monitor For Recurrence Or Metastasis? The Lack Of Surveillance Bothers Me

I just had another long conversation with my oncologist about it. I’ve read and he’s told me that the guidelines state there is no increase in survival if routine imaging or tumor markers are done after being treated. One of my friends had DCIS 10 years ago and her oncologist did routine CA15-3 tests yearly. Her CA15-3 became elevated two years ago and after imaging it was found that she had metastasis to her lungs and she is now stage 4. The lesions were very small and she’s getting Herceptin a… read more

To Those Who Have Lost Their Hair Permanently - Now What?

To Those Who Have Lost Their Hair Permanently - Now What?

I have about 1/3 of the hair I had before chemo, and I'm nearly a year out. I have some hair on the sides, and in the back and a little in the bangs area, but the top is still pretty bald, I didn't wear wigs during chemo, and I'm not going to start now. I am thinking of keeping my head shaved, as it was easier to take care of and I didn't have to try a Trump combover lol. The issue I have with that is I don't want to get the cancer-pity that comes with a bald head. I guess what I am asking, is… read more
