TAXOL IS KICKING MY BUTT!
I feel like such a cry baby tonight. While on the AC portion of my chemo I was so nauseous and weak and felt tired for days afterwards. I was told that the Taxol would cause muscle and joint pain but should be easier on me and have no nausea. Well…holy cow! I am in so much pain that I have been lying on the couch crying. My legs, ankles, feet, back, shoulders, upper arms, neck, and fingers hurt. My fingertips are so tender that I can’t hardly type and I liked to never got my socks on this morning. My hips hurt. I have had 800mg of Advil twice today and finally broke down and took 300mg of Neurontin for the pain. I am sitting on the couch now waiting for the pain to lighten up enough that I can try to sleep. I actually think at this point that I would take the AC nausea over this pain. I am told that the muscle and joint pain should only last 3 days or so. It started last night. It can only get better….right??
