  • Hi  

    I count myself very lucky that I didn't suffer greatly when having chemotherapy but I can certainly sympathise. I assume you have reported this side effect to your chemo unit?

    I noticed that your post hadn't had any replies yet so responding to you will 'bump' it back to the top of the discussion list again. You might also want to post this in the prostate cancer forum as you'll then connect directly with others who may be on the same chemo as you and who can tell you what they find helps.

    While you're waiting for results, it would be great if you could put something about your diagnosis and treatment to date into your profile as it really helps others when replying to you and also when looking for someone on a similar pathway. It also means that you don't have to keep repeating yourself. To do this click on your username and then select 'Profile'. You can amend it at any time and if you're not sure what to write you can take a look at mine by clicking on my username.

  • I had three different types of chemo for breast cancer. The first two were a combination of epirubicin and cyclophosphamide, which I had every 3 weeks  for 3 cycles, and the other was paclitaxel, which I had every week for 12 weeks.
