Heather_T Posted March 15, 2007 Share Posted March 15, 2007 Let me tell you what I have done so far. I first started chemo Taxol/Carbo back in October once a week for 8 weeks and radiation 30x. Took a 3 week break and started Taxol/Carbo on a 21 day cycle 4 times now. I have been having really bad sharp pains in my joints and muscles and they are in my head too It starts about 3-4 days after chemo and lasts 3 days. I hate it because it takes all my strength away when I am holding something or walking. My arms and legs just give out. On my last chemo visit they had to poke me seven times. I am not an easy person to break down in tears but do that to me with a nurse on both arm trying to get a vein will do it to me. I am starting to have more numbing in my finger tips and lower legs too. My CT Scan came back ok cancer has shrunk alot. Now my question is do you think one more chemo will help that much. He wants me to do one more chemo Mar. 29 and then do a PET. I am just so tired. I don't like to complain, I thank GOD I am here daily and how fortunate I am. I just need to know if it is worth it. I am ready to go to the step what ever that may be. I am a candidate for surgery since it has shrunk off my main artery. What do guys think????? Thanks for listening to me rant.
