Hi I have also had a really bad time, had 3 FEC then Docetaxel, and went down hill very quickly ended up in hospital treated for neutropenic sepsis and came out a week last Sunday and spent the next week vomiting at home unable to eat and only drinking water. I also feel I can't cope with any more chemo whatever it is. However, everyone is saying you only have two more to go. I think I'm being put back on FEC for the last 2 treatments and then start the herceptin.
How does every one get through this when you are having such a bad time. Any one got any advise please. My next chemo has been put back a week due to recent admission and I just starting to feel well again and eating again.
