Mum (71) started her 1st Taxol treatment last Friday for re-occurrence, she was fine up until yesterday then started getting stomach pains, legs feeling like heavy weights, nausea. I have just spoken to her and she has been up all night vomiting every hour. She cannot keep anything down even water. She had a bowel obstruction last week prior to treatment but this was sorted out and she has had no further problems with that, so I do not think it is that. She was fine on Carboplatin last year only had a bit of nausea, so this is totally different for her. Is this normal 5 days after treatment? I am concerned in case they say she cannot have Taxol anymore.
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated, she is phoning the hospital but I wanted to find out from others if this is normal.
