Hi  

I am due to start Paclitaxel next week and was wondering if there is anything I should be doing to prepare for this?   I have Stage 4 metastatic breast cancer which has spread to my liver, lungs and bones.  For the last 2.5 years I have been on Palbocliclib and Zolodex so this will be a big change for me.  I don't know if there are any vitamins or anything else I should be looking at.

Thanks for your any advice

  • Hi poppy50, 

    I am so sorry your cancer has progressed and you are now requiring chemotherapy. To reduce the risk of developing peripheral neuropathy cold mitts and gloves have been advised by others on this forum. I believe they are threads about this. Wishing you well as your treatment continues.
