This coming Tuesday will be 2nd treatment with taxol. I am so glad to be done with the A/C stuff. that nausea was horrible. I never did get nausea free between treatments. Now that i'm Taxol, doc put me on xyprexa for nausea and haven't had any signs of it. Also, my appetite is coming back and my taste buds are coming back. Still have the constipation problem from the steroids and the high sugar levels from the steroids too. Robin said the severe bone pain i had last week could be from Taxol and nuelasta interacting. One day it was so bad I didn't get out of bed but cried all day. Every little muscle contraction in my lower back caused extreme throbbing and pain shooting down my legs to my toes. It didn't start hurting until i got the nuelasta shot and it lasted 6 days. I will mention this to my onc dr on monday and ask him what i can take for the pain. I can't take aleeve, or norco. aleeve makes the pain 10 times worse and norco causes extremity swelling to the point i can't put shoes on and my hands and feet look like cabbage patch doll feet and hands. For the constipation problem, i have been put on sennekot-s two pills daily and i am afraid they have me addicted to laxatives now... doc said to take miralax too... I didn't realize miralax takes 3 days to work so i would quit using it after day 2. this time i used it for 3 days and it started working so i'm taking it daily and i'm going to see if i can get off the sennekot-s. But next tuesday is another treatment so the constipation will be back again. I had to use a suppository last week twice because I was so bound up. I hate steroids!!! Well, I guess that is all for my update! Thanks for reading this! And thanks for the encouragement!
