I completed my 4th yesterday at 75% dose. As Tall Allen mentioned I have also been bringing gallon ziplocks filled with ice for my hands, put in a small roll along cooler (I am sure the folks on the elevator took a second look), and packed with 5lbs of dry ice . Used a commercial foot gelpack for feet. So far no neuropathy. I have some fatigue. After the first two treatments I had nasty "Taxotere Rash" on my back. After each treatment my throat and tongue loaded with a sensitive rash. Some fatigue. Loss of sense of taste for 10-11 days. Even ended up in isolation at local hospital when wbc fell to .9 (should be around 6 - 11). No Neulasta after treatment. Now I remind them. Bone pain is there, but better than 2 - 3 days in hospital.
I mentioned all this, and other issues, to MO who cut my dose to 65%. Explaining that I did not "metabolize" as well as some. Will wait and see.
I did read an article that indicated 86% of those who start the six treatments complete all 6. MO said it may be a little higher.
You may want to consider ice and gelpack for future treatment. There have been trials done on them. I particular for hair loss.
Wishing you the best.
