My Dad sure had a rough time of it with his second large dose chemo of
Taxol/Carbo. Didn't have the tremors (they gave him Ativan and he was taking it
occ. so maybe warded off the tremors?) but he felt so bad with aches and pain in
legs, ankles, wrists. He felt awful; you'd have to know him realize how bad it
was for him--our family has stubborn streak a mile wide and you don't admit
you don't feel well!!!!! When I asked if he might go back to once a week
tx. he said" I KNOW I am!!!" I'm glad he has the option to switch
back. Also--my girl friend had breast cancer I'm guessing at least 5
yrs ago; had total mastect. and there was some lymph node involvement.
She had chemo. She recently had reoccurance and had chemo (3 drugs).
Talked to her today and she said Dr. himself called her--couldn't hardly believe
it---CT showed no cancer!!!!!!!!! She told me that's what happens when you have
more than 200 hundred people praying for you. AMEN to
that!!!!!!! She will still have some radiation as her Dr is very
aggressive about cancer. I thought this good news deserved to be shouted from
the rooftops. Pat
