Re: Chemo decisions

I am amazed that they are letting you pick! I had all TCH because FEC was unsuitable because I take tablets for blood pressure and high cholesterol.

 

The side effects are different. On FEC you can be sick as in throwing up a lot and it can damage your veins. The TC makes you very tired and lowers you blood counts more and can damage your nerves.

 

Don't worry because lots of us have been through it and we are still here xxx

Re: Chemo decisions

Hi Chas

 

I am sorry that you havent received a response to your post yet.  I am sure that someone will be along shortly to share their own experience with you.

 

In the meantime you may find it helpful to talk with one of our specialiasts on our free Helpline, 0808 800 6000.  Or maybe post a question on the Ask Our Nurses area of the Forum?

 

Best wishes
