Chemotherapy - JustForToday

Drug or Chemo Therapy Associated with Triple-Negative Breast Cancer, Ductal. Posted on December 27, 2017 View this journey (3 Experiences)

I had 2 months of Adriamycin/Cytoxan therapy every 2 weeks with Neulasta injection the day following infusion. I had 3 months of Taxol on a weekly basis. Side effects for Taxol were less than those from the AC. My biggest problem was that I caught a cold during chemotherapy. The chemo kept me from recovering from the cold and it was 6 weeks of misery until I told oncologist I had to have a week off to recover. She gave me antibiotics which improved the situation, but the cough lasted for a full 3 months. I completed my final chemo infusion on December 26, 2017.

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

    Congratulations on being done with chemo. It is a wonderful feeling. I am sorry that you also had to deal with a nasty cold during this time. I hope now that chemo is done you are able to rest and give your body time to recuperate and do something just for yourself. Take care. I wish you a very Happy and Healthy New Year.

    I also had a cold during treatment and was given antibiotics during treatment. I wonder why they made you stop as I didn’t have to. Oh well, glad you are finished and hopefully feeling better.
