Doxil Chemo Treatments have turned my life upside down
Hi @pat417, I wanted to check in and see how you are doing? Doxil certainly can pack a punch and make you very fatigued. Have you had your second dose yet? Are you on a 2 or 4 week schedule?

My Doctor took me off Doxil, I became too weak after just the one treatment. He will be putting me on a parp inhibitor even though I don't have the BRAC mutation, This may be my last hope. My belly became so filled with fluid that they drained 4 liters off last Friday and the nurse could tell it was starting again today. She is asking the doctor for a standing order. Feeling like I'm getting close to the end, 125 jumped from 500 to 1100 on two weeks time.
