Paclitaxel- Fatigue

Hi all,

I was wondering if you any of you can shed some light on this subject for me.

My mum is on paclitaxel (can’t remember exactly how many cycles) but I want to say 5…

She is incredibly tired… she is ok about 3 days after having the chemo (I think this is because of the steroids) but then she really struggles.

Have any of you experienced this? Did anything help?

Thankyou x x

Hi Marie,

Sorry to hear about your mum, thoughts and prayers for her quick recovery.

I am in a similar position with m mum, she is triple neg breast cancer, suffering so much, the pain is too much for her.

Shes on her 4th cycle of paclitaxel and her body has weakened so much each weak, she now cannot walk or go toilet herself and I am worried, if its the pacs or cancer spreading, I hope its the paclitaxel aide affects.

Mums had a really bad time with her treatment and as much as I love nhs they messed up so bad! Admitted it to.

Your mum needs lots of rest, plenty of water and good greens, maybe vitamin b12. My mum is hit and miss with all that as she is suffering so much but we are trying and praying there is a light at the end of this tunnel.

Keep in touch and let me know how your mum gets on
