my husband just recieved his 4th treatment of Chemo... He is given Paclitaxel and Carboplatin... He is not bouncing back as he has in the past with the other three treatments.... Experiencing leg pain, extreme fatigue, no appetite whatsoever, and stomach discomfort, which sometimes leads to vomiting...I feel this is due to the Chemo, and hopefully after this weeks catscan, and follow-up with the doctor, he will be dismissed from the treatments.. and his body will start to heal.....I have read all the possible side effects of these drugs, and what I have just described, fall into the categories.... The doctor was pleased with his last catscan about a month ago, said the small tumors were even smaller... I pray he has had his last Chemo treament....
