Hi Lisa,
I am so sorry for all your pain and that no one responded to you sooner. Many regulars don't post as often, but know that you are heard!
I can certainly relate to all the chemo pain, especially from taxol. It lasted for several months after treatment, but things DO get better.
Do you have a good support system? I hope there are family members and friends who can help you out.
I know it is tiring and frustrating, but you have to stay strong!
Please let us know what happened with your tests.

You will be in my prayers for good results.

Jenna

I agree with Jenna, try to stay strong. What I was told and I say to you, try to stay positive and don't focus as much on the moment but on the future.

One of the best things someone told me to do was to plan ahead.. never say "if I am around next month" or anything like that. Make plans.. schedule a summer vacation, make plans to see a movie that's coming out next month. Feel and know that you will get past this hurdle and have an exciting summer/fall/winter coming up.

Your results will be good and you will beat this horrible disease. It is no longer a death sentence.
