    antmad shared an experience

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): I currently taking Nexavar (sorafenib). I started off with half the dosage (2 pills). My oncologist told me that Asian people don't tolerate a full dosage (4 pills). I wish my oncologist at the time, told me that he was retiring as i would have picked another oncologist During our appointments, i provided him with the side effects i was experiencing and all he can say is yes you have to deal with them. You're the 10 percent of the people that lose their hair, you may consider a wig.

    I've been on it for 2 months and seeing a new oncologist who is reducing my dosage again to one pill a day due to my side effects. Extrememe hair loss, peeling skin and calluses on my feet. I'm happy with my new Dr now as she said we will adjust your dosage based on your side effects. Hopefully, the lower dosage will reduce my side effects and keep the cancer from growing at the same time.
