Chemotherapy Reviews

Show: for
What's there to say. It was awful, but required to achieve remission and go to transplant. I guess they have to fight fire with fire.
I did well with my induction and second induction and 1st consolidation treatment, it was afterwards when my platelets dropped very low and I began bleeding from every where.
In remission, minimal effects
Working / Worked
It is working but horrible. I hate needles.
I was very sensityve, My treatment was between 1999 and 2000, I was only 16 years old. I have very deep an very bad side effects. Every blood levels down.
My CLL came to a head in October of 2012. I couldn't get into a doctor until January 2013 - that was after a GP, Urgent Care and an ENT that didn't know what was wrong with me.
I started chemo in April and have completed 6 rounds and am in remission. Doing fine right now.

New protocal of 18 treatments. Carboplatin every 3 weeks. Taxol every week in smaill doses, instead of 6 of large doses. Seem to be doing well. Less side effects. My hair is even starting to grow back.
