Hi MK - of course you knew I could comment as I've literally taken them all. . . Xeloda has been doing a serios number on my nails, so we stopped it week. This week I took Herceptin and Abraxane. The possible difficulities with Abraxane can be some bone pan and fatigue ( will sleep ALOT this weekend), some taste changes that pass, hair loss (x6 for me) but that is about it. A couple of years ago it did give me incredible dry eyes which effected my vision but when I stopped, vision came back fine. It's definitely doable. Tell her to hang in there and never giver up. I celebrated 11 years on this earth last month and am thankful for every day.
I have retired effective 06/01 and got my teacher's disability and my social security approval about a month after applying. First check comes in October. I will get my remaining teacher checks through August so all is well. Feeling much better since stopping Ixempra!
Will check in soon. Hugs
