Had 2nd chemo carboplatin/taxol last wed so now day 7. After effects of 1st chemo was horrendous and this one seems to be following same form. Appears to go increasingly downhill after 2nd day and stays on a nitemare plateau for 2 weeks Having had numerous water infections in the past i feel as if this is big part of the problem. Had anti biotics last time although there were no cultures grown. Still no cultures on sample but mentioned white cells. onc wasn't much help said I appear to be unkucky n havin more side effects than usual but this is the treatment.. Ward doc was more helpful saying I have all symptoms and I probably have uti even tho no cultures grown. Given buscapan to prevent spasms and ibuprofen. Thought I was determined and a fighter but am really worn down now and don't think I can do this again. Painful knees and numb fingers now as well. Any advice would be appreciated. Xx
