Hi there. I just saw your post. How did you do? I am on taxol/cargo x3 weekly with x2 taxol weekly in between. Not as bad as. EC but tired with numb feet xx

Yes I had that plus Herceptin. It makes you very tired and you don’t feel better even when you rest. On the plus side is does not make you feel sick. I fasted before all of my chemos and had fewer side effects than other people.


I only had 4 not 6 because my blood counts went too low.
