Hi, I too was diagnosed with Grade 3 OC at the end of Feb 2017. I had a full abdominal hysterectomy plus a major debulking, omentum, lymph nodes, even appendix. I had a post-operative infection in my wound which I am still having treated on a weekly basis but despite this my oncologist started my chemo (Paclitaxel/Carboplatin) at the end of April. I am now 2 down and 4 to go. After my first cycle, from day 2, I suffered with terrible pains in my muscles, joints and soft tissue. It was as if I was being stabbed with red hot needles. I did find that paracetamol, hot wheat bags and water bottles on my legs helped and after about day six it all subsided. My newbie question is actually about my hair loss. I am a young 66 and my hair has always been thick and healthy. I have the inevitable grey hair but also had quite a lot of my own mousie brown colour too which I interspersed with blonde highlights. Since day 12 of my first cycle, my hair started to fall out but only my brown hair. I am now left with thinning grey (correction, it has now turned white) hair and yesterday I thought "sod it, it's wig time" and started wearing my wig. Has anyone else experienced this? I would have thought the grey might have gone first. Anyway, having had my second cycle last Friday I can feel the start of the leg pains again. Has anyone else got any good remedies for this extremely painful side effect.
Regards to all. June 27 x
