Topic: Taxotere (8 day post check up)
Interested CC Members:
Had weekly check up of my first treatment of Taxotere. Lost 7 pounds, and severely nuetropenic. Had to rehydrate and go on filgratsin and antibiotic for one week. will check again next Monday. This Taxotere is pretty harsh on the immune system. Side effects to date other than above is numbmness in finger tips, toes,and mouth and tounge. Also shooting pain ocassionally to liver and lung tumors. Will decide on the 16th if I want to continue. should have CA-19 marker done then. Still to early for CT scan. I did want to say my apetite has not been hampered at all.
