Chemotherapy - bizzibee

Drug or Chemo Therapy Associated with Lung Cancer. Posted on September 7, 2012 View this journey (5 Experiences)

My regimen was Taxol, Carboplatin, and Avastin per IV port every three weeks for six times. They really hit me hard. I had so much pain for the first three treatments....................I felt that there were loads of people standing around me that were throwing needles, knives, pins, anything sharp at me..........I would jump when the pain would hit. I was on pretty heavy duty pain drugs for the first three treatments for at least a week after the treatment. I went for my fourth treatment and I was so weak that I could hardly walk. The oncologist stated "we've beaten you up pretty bad". I was in total agreement! He decided to "lighten" the dose and then the pain was not as bad.............much more tolerable. The whole oncology Team was so kind and considerate and attentive.
