Docetalxol after fec and svated

My first t on Friday very anxious about it. Any tips on what to ask for to stop the joint pains. I’ve had investing injections throughout fec they make you have flu like symptoms so is it gonna be even worse with the t. Also on the fec I had about 10 feeling normal does this happen with the t ? Help x

Hi Lisa


I had my first Docetaxel on Tuesday morning so far all I have had is arms feeling like lead first thing in the mornings - but the oncologist said to start with four hourly pain relief from the start. Don’t wait until the pain starts as once it begins it can be very difficult to get on top of it. So I have been taking fourly tablets of cocodamol since I came home after chemo.

As, when and if anything else develops I’ll let you know.
