The experience is different for everyone.
I was Stage I when I was first diagnosed and had 4 AC treatments. I'd be sleepy the day of the treatment. Twice I was able to work out the next day. I had the treatments whenever possible on a Friday or Thursday. I did not get sick. I did need shots following the first treatment because of low blood counts but not later.
I was on Tamoxifen for almost two years before finding out the disease metastasized. I started Taxol/Avastin. I cannot remember how many cycles I had of Taxol but it was many. I was on a once a week for three week cycle with a week off in between. I did lose my hair but not all of it like I did when I was on AC. At some point I tweaked my knee and it seemed the Taxol enhanced the discomfort I felt. I noticed it at night more so than in the day. It was not awful. I did have a little neuropathy in my finger tips and the nails on my toes and fingers discolored and were thick. I was able to work and workout during this time. A friend of mine has arthritis and she experienced more knee discomfort while on Taxol. She received a higher dose every 14 or 21 days versus receiving the drug in smaller doses once a week. I don't know if that makes a difference or not.
I stopped the Taxol as I was stable and started on Femara. In less than a year the disease came back and I started on Taxol again. I had at least two or three cycles before receiving the Avastin this time. I had a port put in and had to wait on the Avastin. I did not have the knee issue again but did lose my hair and had the same issues with the nails. I think it might have been with this round I lost my eyelashes. My eyebrows might have thinned but I did not lose them until much later on a different drug.
Hang in there and listen to your body. Take it easy when you need to. This is your new normal. My hope is you don't feel as bad as you did previously on the AC. The AC is tough.
