Hi Sherrieh, is your neuropathy in feet gone?
I have stage 3 b invasive, infiltrating breast cancer. I had a bilateral mastectomy ,June 28... I had 4 rounds of chem cytoxan/ taxoterr / herceptin, then 5 more rounds of just herceptin ..I more to go on Monday i did not begin chemo until October 7 th as I was petrified of it and really did not want it. I am bald. I began anastrozole march 1 2014. I have total insomnia...weight gain and I am already very overweight. I have a lot of hot flashes and prickly heat all over it is awful. I had a… read more
I am on Anastrozole, but guess I am blessed. No major aches or pains, but am constantly tired, however, I usually can't sleep. I try to nap, but can't. I am starting to gain weight and don't like… read more
I take Tamoxifen(5yr) and Lupron injections monthly for a year.
My oncologist just prescribed Venlafaxine 37.5 mg and I have taken one and felt soooo weird.
I have a bit less hot flashes on Zoladex than Lupron. My doctor suggested the rx Oxybutynin for the hot flashes and it worked like a charm.
I'm currently waiting to hear from a radiation oncologist. This is my second time with cancer, but I didn't get radiation the first time. How many treatments did you get ? Did you have any side effects ? Did you burn at all ? Just curious what's in store.
I just finished 4 weeks of treatment (20 sessions) on my right breast. I bought Miaderm and used three times a day, along with fresh aloe and CeraVe. I got a rash a few weeks on my chest above my… read more
Hello looking for your feedback on Arimidex? Thoughts? Thanks. Terry
I do Doxorubicin and Cytoxan. The combo is called AC. I really have been lucky with minimal side effects. Doxorubicin is nicknamed Red Devil. My biggest issues has been fatigue, nausea… read more
I was wondering what you do to help your fatigue other then exercise????
Thank you this is just for my fatigue but thank you
I had a page typed up about side affects etc. but put in safe places and can't find it now (I am sure that somewhere amongst that pile is part of my brain) I have read a lot about that on y here just need Some input start round 1 tomorrow
I had 11 rounds taxol and Herceptin 6 months. I do have lasting neuropathy but more annoying than anything. I continued strength workouts and 2 days/week PT through chemo.
I completed 4 rounds of Taxotere and Cytoxan over a month ago. After round 3, my leg muscles got weak and fatigued, and this is the only side effect that has still not improved. In fact think it’s worsening. Doc suggested magnesium supplements which haven’t worked yet. (Only been 4 days)
I experienced pain and weakness but it did go away eventually but it took time. I found that walking actually helped a lot. I hope you start feeling better soon.
I want to hear about your experiences because this will be coming up in my future. I know everyone reacts differently but I really want to know all the dirty little details so I can be prepared. I am really hoping to work as a preschool teacher through at least some of the treatment, so if you worked or found you just couldn't please tell me about that too.
A textile The worst it did for me was give me neuropathy and my feet and my hands and I still after 2 months of being off of it I have neuropathy in my feet I would have to say if you're going on to… read more
