Breast Cancer in 2009, drug combo with Taxotere. The side effects were there, but thankful to have been cancer free since my last treatment in 2010.

After using interferons successfully for years, I began to progress and nothing seemed to help the relapses. I was on cytoxan without steroids every 2-3 weeks for 26 months. When we kept my wBC (white blood count) between 2.0 and 2.5, I felt better, had more energy and fewer symptoms that impacted my life day to day. I did lose most of my hair and became B12 deficient and anemic and towards the end of the 2 year mark, began to have fewer good days than bad. At that point, the decision was made to stop treatment. 6 months later I had fewer symptoms of MS and my MRI was quiet and I had more energy than I had had in more than 20 years. It was a very good therapy for me considering others I had tried and gave me good quality of life afterwards for more than two years since I have finished the medication.

Very satisfied. Been receiving this treatment every few years or so since I was 15 years old. I just celebrated my 38th Birthday and was able to conceive my little girl who is perfectly healthy. Works better than the pills. My blood pressure goes down significantly. Thats how I was able to conceive because the physicians were able to take me off my pressure pills after treatment for 6 months. I maintained a six year remission, but developed hypertension again during my ninth month of pregnancy, but would do it all again. You do experience nausea and fatigue during the night but it doesn't last too long. Was able to attend and complete graduate school and work my full time job while taking it because I was using it with a series of good multivitamins, Fish oil and Ensure to replace the cells and regenerate my body.
