Hi just thought I would update you re my mothers treatment - she is presently on weekly dose of carbo and taxol - to be honest she is finding it hard - she is exhausted and can manage to walk about a little, literally from her bedroom to the bathroom and downstairs to the sitting room. There is definitely a cycle with days 2 - 4 after chemo being bad - all of this has been made worse by the fact that her bloods indicated she was low in magnesium consequently she was given magnesium tablets which we believe has caused diarhoea. I looked it up and apparently too much magnesium can bring this on. Has anyone else had debilitating feelings with chemo and the magnesium issue? I must add that she is eating well, has lost no weight but appears to find it difficult.
I look forward to your replies as I find this site really helpful and encouraging.
