Breast cancer

Last reply: 5 months ago

Hi...I was diagnosed with stage 2 grade 3 IDC her 2 neg not in nodes. Finished AC therapy and I am due to start taxol for 4 rounds. AC was not great as in tired and weak shaky feeling but that was it basically....not bad really.
How do women find taxol therapy? I know chemo affects people differently but just a general idea would be great.
I'm done with no energy for few days after chemo with kids on school holidays.

I didn’t find taxol too bad. The only side effect I had from it was slight peripheral neuropathy in my hands and my feet.

I hope the rest of your treatment goes well.

Best wishes
