      Hi! I am on Doxil, Avastin and Carboplatin since the end of May. Which particular side effects are you experiencing? I have alot of acid reflux/gas. My labs are a big issue. Low platelets, low hemoglobin/hematocrit and low neutrophils. Besides drinking lots of fluids to flush out your system (at least 64 ounces per day-stay away from caffeine and alcohol they make you lose water) . I am doing the mouth rinses (1/4 tsp of salt and 1/2 tsp of baking soda in a cup.of water 3-4 times per day to prevent mouth sores). No skin issues so far, thank goodness. You can apply.lotion to.your hands and feet to help.prevent skin problems. I.had a Muga scan before I started chemo, more to follow to make sure I have no negative heart affects from Doxil. I have "pre" mouth sores so as long as I do the mouth care they never become mouth sores
