Hello ladies, I'm from the October thread and had fecx6. I was quite lucky and managed to get away with minimal SEs and worked all the way through and through my rads too. My advice would be don't suffer in silence, call your chemo unit if you're really suffering with nausea or anything and they'll tweak your meds. Also if you're on ordansetron that'll bung you up and I was given laxido which I used to start taking the day after chemo until I was going normally again. If you're having fecx6 and have any questions then feel free to pop on and post a message on our October thread as there were 4 of us on there who had fecx6 and someone should be able to answer.
I've done two T's now, last one this week. I'd say my mouth was a bit sorer than on FEC and I had a disgusting taste in my mouth for a week that seemed harder to deal with. And I was definitely more tired, but that could be more to do with it being 4th/5th chemo rather than change of drugs. Just as doable as FEC reallyxxx
Katflo , hope you dont mind me asking but how did you get on when you changed to T? I change next week and am really worried about it and the side effects x
Hi Tracey, thanks I will have a look and I agree we do need help and support. Good luck and let’s hope it’s not as bad as we think. Take care, Karen
Hi Katflo, thank you for letting me know, that does not sound too bad. Hope next lot is not as bad as you
think. I’m not feeling as scared now. Thanks and good luck
