What side effects did you experience while on this medication?

Hi, I'm Robert E T.

This regimen was quite “toxic” for me. The Taxotere in particular created a great deal of discomfort especially so in my throat and mouth area. So much so, that I demanded to be removed from the therapy irrespective of the consequences, including death. My therapy was changed and I subsequently went into remission for several months. I am today awaiting on the results of my latest CT scan administered on November 11, 2019.
