Hi, started taxol yesterday and having 18 weekly cycles. I got up to go to the toilet and started to wee a bit like I had no control over my bladder. The same happened last night even though I had been. It just happens. Has anyone had this problem before. Love rosie112

Hi rosie112

While you’re waiting for a reply about this, do feel free to also call our specialist breast care nurses on Monday, you can reach them on 0808 800 6000.

We also have some useful information about Taxol side effects on our website:

Take care, Becca at Breast Cancer Care.

Hi Rosie112, I thought I was the only one! Yes, I have had a problem with slight urine leakage while on Paclitaxel. I thought maybe it was a side effect of the hormone dampening effects of chemo. Hopefully it will wear off as I finished chemo last week. I have been too bashful to ask my oncologist about it as he is a younger man and I hate talking abowels and bladder stuff with him. Silly old me!
