Hi Illmac- Large tumor here too (4.5 cm) dx in 2001, had 4 rounds of taxotere after A/C and FEC and Herceptin for 1 year. From what I remember, there was no nausea, but the beds of my nails and toes ached (I took Advil) and I was hungry for a day or so from the steroid (decadron maybe?) that they gave me before administering the taxotere. I remember it as being 'easier' than the A/C or FEC regimen.
Curly K - I will be praying for you with your mast. I had a bilat. mast in 2001 and it went well.... recovery wasn't so bad, I was up and around in a day or so... good luck and hope it goes smoothly,
hugs to you both!
