I am so happy to say I am done with A/C.  The fatigue was horrible, but other side effects were manageable.  I am sure that getting a cold and thrush made the fatigue worse.  Last week I had to get 2 granix shots.  That really helped as my WBC count got down to .7.  After the granix it was 22.2.  Much better!

Now I will start Taxol and Carboplatin every third infusion.  I plan to ice my hands and feet to help with neuropathy.  Dr. Traina's office said the icing for the neuropathy is not proven but shows hopeful signs.  They did say there is a proven connection between icing hands and feet and reducing nail damage.  I never knew nail damage was even an issue.  Her office said some women's nails turn black and fall off!  Yikes!

I would love to hear from anyone who used icing to help with neuropathy and know what your experience was.
