Stage 1 Patient
I Linda. I didn't have taxol, but taxatere. (TCH) they are similar. Everyone is different, but these were my effects.... Hair loss after 2 weeks. Some nausea & aches. Take your meds. Easier to treat then to take it away. Metal taste. Use plastic ware. Eat/drink whatever tastes good. I liked salty or spicy food. Each treatment I got more tired. Drink LOTS of water to flush it out. Stay active, but listen to your body, rest when needed. As for the herceptin, that's all I'm on now, I get flu like systems. Cold, achy, tired. & my nose drips ALL the time. This is all do-able, just stay positive. Prayers to you.
