First chemo - carboplatin/taxol - what to expect - side effects?
Hello, I was diagnosed with Stage 3cG3 Uterine Papillary Serous Carcinoma 11/11 also positive in ovaries per pathology report after TAH-BSO on 12/21. Chemo on Carboplatin/Taxol recommended for 6 cycles 1x/3 wks for 18 wks. First chemo scheduled Friday 1/13. Apprehensive of side effects specially of neuropathy. Do side effects happen right away? During session? and for how long? Days 1-4, 2-6? Will youbstillbhave side effects on 2nd-3rd week? NP recommended to wear cooling gloves and socks to guard against neuropathy – has anyone tried them and have positive results?
Has anyone declined carboplatin/Taxol and went on a different regimen instead?
Appreciate all your replies and support.
