Re: Docetaxil and phesgo newly diagnosed

Hello, 

Docetaxel is an excellent drug. 

I had Paxlitaxel (it's sister, tamer co-joined twin drug) last year on Secondary diagnosis. I am so relieved to only be on Phesgo now. Injections are the way forward, not IV. I had no side effects from Paxlitaxel. I wore the Cold Cap throughout my sixteen weeks of it. My hair thinned a bit but you would have had to know me very well to detect it. From what I can gather, I think Docetaxel does make hair loss but the nurses will know better. It still maybe worth giving the Cold Cap a go? 

I have no side effects from the needle of Phesgo. I love it.

Please feel free to PM me.

Don't crack up. You can do this 👍

Docetaxil and phesgo newly diagnosed

Hi

Any advice please newly diagnosed with liver mets they thought it had also gone to my ribs but bone scan showed up nothing. I was originally diagnosed on feb 2004, with primary er/pr positive her2 negative. My liver biopsy is now er/pr negative and her2 positive. So first treatment chemo with the phesgo I think that’s how you spell it. I need a heart scan but there is a waiting list so they have agreed to start chemo with the phesgo if need be. I am dropping to a dark place I was hoping it would be the same hormone related but to start with chemo again I am dreading, anyone help with advice or have similar would be great to hear from you. I just keep looking at my kids 18, 20 and 22 and thinking what I am going to miss out on xx
