    Has anyone had this experience? Stopped treatment the end of July and still experiencing tingling/numbness in toes. Wonder how long this will last.

      There are holistic medical doctors who might be able to help.  Might be worth it to check out. Although they are MD's, you won't find them covered under medical insurance.

        My hair is finally starting to come in. It's about a 1/4 to 1/2 long. I can't wait until it gets a little bit longer so I can ditch the wig. Thanks for everyone's responses.

          I just finished my chemo today. (Started in April). I had bad experiences as well. My husband told me he was proud of me for being so strong. I told him "It's not like I had a choice". So, do what you gotta do to put it behind you and get better. Kathy

            I guess the calcification masked the tumor in the mamogram. They were able to see the tumor with an ultrasound and confirmed with biopsy, which was done at the same time. I'm going through treatment now and will be having surgery soon. There's still so much I don't understand.

              I got a regular mamogram and they said to come back because they saw calcification. They gave me the whole 80% chance of nothing and turns out I have stage II breast cancer. So long story...short. Do it. Do it for your family. If all is okay - what a great feeling that would be. Do it.

                Is it okay to drink while on Taxol? My doctor said one beer or one glass of wine.

                    I know this isn't the most important thing but I know I'm going to bum out when it happens. Sure. I'm glad the cancer was caught early and happy to be alive but I'm still scared and will feel like a freak until it grows back.
