I finished my Abraxane treatment a little over 1 year ago. I still have severe numbness and swelling in my hands and legs. I also had substantial vision loss almost immediately after my first treatment. I was in terrible pain during the treatment.

I’m triple negative breast cancer with mets to the brain (twice) and neck tumors, had surgeries to take care of that, brain radiation (twice) and now I’m on abraxane and an immunotherapy. I’m about to start my 6th month on Abraxane. I have experienced feet and finger neuropathy, ocasional constipation, fatigue and hair loss. It’s still tolerable and I’m still alive to take care of my teenage twins. I’m thankful for this. I gave up sodas and fast food. I drink lots of water and home made meals to try to take better care of my liver, kidneys, intestine while on chemo so I can finish the treatment.

Just finished one session of Herceptin and Abraxane and one session of Abraxane. I developed hives/rashes on my wrist, shoulder, neck and back. Went to see dermatologist prescribed claritin and triamcinolone. Itches continues. Anyone else experience this?

Completed my 10th treatment. 3 weeks on 1 week off. Mild side effects including hair loss, fatigue, metallic taste, constipation week of treatment which I use Merrulax for. Stool softners were not effective. Good nutrition and hydrating is very important. Cancer markers have all decreased and recent PET scan showed significant improvement.
