Targeted therapy - cancergirl50

Drug or Chemo Therapy Associated with Ovarian and Fallopian Tube Cancer. Posted on September 9, 2012 View this journey (6 Experiences)

Infusion itself is not hard. Watching a nurse put a needle into my vein became customary. The side effects quickly went from managable to horrible. Diarrhea, vomiting, insomnia, bone pain, fatigue, hair loss, sesitivity to the sun, hot flashes, and weight gain were dealt with nearly everyday throughout my infusion cycles. I still experience most of these effects in addition to short term memory loss and confusion.

Easy to Do: Agree
Minimal Side Effects: Strongly Disagree
Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Disagree

    Oh, yeah - been there with you ! Did you have IP infusions as well ? I felt relatively okay until they started. Everything went down hill after IP treatment began. But, as you say, I'm still alive (sort of) so you take the good with the bad, I guess.
