Beth: What everyone has said I agree with. The one thing about Taxol is that is seems to attack any weak areas in your body. Anytime any of us has a new ache or pain we "panick". I am always relieved when I get the results back from my PET scan every 3 months to find out that there is no new cancer. As for the meds making you sick. Are you eating or at least drinking a glass of milk before you take them? If not, try that. Also, you might try taking 1/2 of the pill and then 30 mins or so later taking the other 1/2. This might help. The one thing that I do know is that you CAN NOT take this on an empty stomach.
Hang in there sweetie. You aren't alone.
