    I'm on my 8th treatment of Taxol, and it makes my bones ache to the point to where I have to go to Pain Management. My hair is falling out also. It keeps me down about four days out of the week. I take it via a port in my chest, I go once a week,and I only have four more treatments to go.

    I just finished chemo treatment. I found this drug so difficult to tollerate. I have been off the chemo for a month and my hands and feet remain numb and burn. Also my legs hurt terrible. It was a bad experience. I do not see how anyone could take this and work. Good luck to all who take this drug.

I also could not work for over a year ... Show Full Comment

    I experienced bone crushing pain all over. Most severe in knees, feet and ankles, but mildly in arms, neck and hands. Numbness in hands and fingers. Needed daily naps! Confusion, would get lost driving or suddenly forget how to drive. Could not work due to memory loss and lack of focus and concentration
