Had no hair loss or nausea from this med. I did have mild muscle and joint discomfort in my legs,feet arms and hands.Had four sessions of this med. It seems my fourth session was when the muscle pain began.

The side effects were severe especially for the last two weeks of a 6 month regimen. The straw that broke the camel's back was when I lost my hearing and equilibrium at that time.Six months later I have regained most of both.

This is my 2nd phase of treatment for this 1 type of breast cancer.taxol is slowly wearing me down. My hands have been peeling,my throat is sore and my voice is very raspy. The pain in my hands and feet are starting to be too much. I have 7 more rounds of the taxol, 12 total. My hair hasn't came back yet and I still have a very sensitive mouth and sores in it still. It also makes me extremely and I mean extremely tired.

Taking the medication hasn't been bad, but the side effects when added to the ones one expects (nausea, hair loss) can be overwhelming. It did lower my white blood cells and had to be adjusted after the fourth session.
