Ductal Carcinoma Stage 1 HER2 Positive
I was diagnosed Nov 4, 2020 with ductal carcinoma stage 1 HER2 positive breast cancer. On Nov 20 I had a lumpectomy. I had my first chemo treatment of Taxol and Kangenti Dec 28th. I thought I was doing pretty well. Just felt really tired. Then on the 3 & 4th day after, I experienced severe abdominal pain that radiated to my joints and bones and down my legs. Since it was New Years Day, I talked to the doc on call and she suggested I double up on Tramadol. It finally helped, but took a long time to control the pain. I have figured out to take the pain meds before the pain gets out of hand. Yet I don’t want to be on pain meds all of the time. Any similar experiences or remedies anyone can share?
I experienced pretty severe pain and Claritin helped. I don’t think anything will completely take it away. I also made sure to walk daily or go shopping, I tried not to stay in bed, even though I was so tired. Hope you get some relief.
