I have recently started treatment for recurring cancer.Rubrac a didn't work for me and I have already had Carbo/Taxol and Carbo/Caelyx. As my son and his family are visiting from New Zealand in July (prompted by my increasing ill health) I decided to try Anastrazole tablets rather than weekly Taxol, which I was also offered. The oncologist said that both have about 20% chance of success!
I am now suffering from constant backache which I am going to be scanned for, although the oncologist thinks it is due to lymph node involvement behind my spine. I have been prescribed Oramorph for this. Also, due to the fact that the Omeprazole will affect my bones, I am taking Adcal and Alendronic Acid, as I already have osteoporosis. Had anybody else taken these without unpleasant side effects? I am feeling so tired and in pain, and I so want to enjoy my son's visit later in the year.
