Welcome, ran_sav

It would be great if you could also introduce yourself in the 'Introduce yourself' thread. It helps us know you better and helps others to get help from you:

As for the side effects, fatigue is felt by practically each and every person undergoing chemo, for any cancer. It tends to fade away slowly, don't worry. It will slowly, but surely go away.

Like Sarika has mentioned, try to do something which you like, if helps. Keep yourself adequately hydrated with lots of fluids. If you can manage, try to follow your hobbies. You are almost nearing the completion of your chemo, so good times are waiting for you ahead.

Like Manish mentioned above, all the effects of chemo you have mentioned, have been discussed in great detail in the forums. On the right hand side, in the categories, click chemotherapy and you will find a lot of discussion on almost each and every one of these effects.

Let us know, if you need anything.

We are all one family.

Hi ran_sav - now you the chemo is almost on the completion - ABHI ACHEE DIN ANE WALE HAI. As Rana said keep yourself busy. My sister had 6 cycles of chemo after a gap of 21 days - she used to go to office on the 4th day. Take lot of fluids - like coconut water, water melon juice etc eat whatever you like. Try to talk with your friends, near and dear ones - you will feel better. See TV serials, songs or whatever you like - this will help a lot and don't think much about the cancer. Everything will be fine very soon. Take care and keep sharing

A Nashville based company is doing pharmaco genetics study with saliva.This alongwith tumor genetics gives an excellent idea as to which medicines are good for particular patient.The cost is high but worth spending.

My wife was on way to Papclitaxel chemo therapy 12 cycles.

Half the way we did the test & the result showed that this chemo will not work in her case.-saved her from the hassles of rest of the chemo.

Lamchee - Do you have more information about this test or a link to information about it? Is is a mainstream test or does it fall under the heading of alternative medicine?

Hi ran sav.

All the side effects of chemo will go once the chemo is over. All these are the side effects of chemo but take medicines given by doctor to control above. U are already on marathon and very soon u will be the winner.

Even i also had the same side effects but it had gone after chemo is over

Take care

Hello!! My wife aged 35 years , was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in February 2014, underwent a lumpectomy. Now she is under chemotherapy. She had her periods before the First Chemo. Doctor told that the Periods will stop during the Chemo. 9th May she finished her third (chemo after 21 days), now she has got her periods. Any thing to worry about. I am worried

Hello welcome on forum. Dr Sumeet may guide you correctly about this.

I am 32, had lumpectomy chemo and radiation, well, your wife is of mine age, I too found irregular periods during my chemo and sometimes unusual bleeding so I was on some medicine perhaps Tranexa then after 5 months of post treatment everything is normal now.

Best wishes for her treatment.

Hi arjana - instead of asking to mail separately on the mail ID - you answer on this forum directly so that all the members will be benefitted.

Correctly and very well said, kontak.

Unfortunately, many people do not understand the motive of this forum. It is purely to help one another, WITHOUT any expectation or benefit. People, like the one above, try to advertise here, which is against the rules. If they wish to help, they can very well help by replying to others here.
