Sounds like you are managing well! Good on you! And keep up the awesome job! Docetaxol has a set of challenges but not nausea and it can't hurt your heart like adriamycin. The neupogen/neulasta shots can give bony pain deep inside. Don't hesitate to try something. Apparently Claritin taken before treatment and then several days helps (wish I'd known that) Anyone with more comments on that?
