This has worked well for my mother during her breast/lung cancer. She is not nauseaous at all but her blood pressure can be very high to very low. She has lost hair and is very tired.

Since 2009 September I'm using once a week, for 3 weeks and resting two weeks. The oncologist told me the results are very good but I'm paying a high price: bad taste in my mouth, headache, prostration, loss of memory, intestine doesn't function, and most of all, I feel tired and sleepy all the time.

Breast Ca stage 4111c. Started on taxol and Gemsen for 6 months every fri and skip one fri a month. After Bilat simple Mastectomies had 38 sessions of Radiation to Right breast and Axillia. I has involved LNd in supraclavicular also. I was considered cancer free but within a month after all tx's done felt new lumps in surgical margin and chest wall. Recurrence in soft tissue. Triple neg markers but docs were surprised anyway. Taxol for three months and resection of surgical margin. Went on Xelodal for six months and found more lumps on groin and opposite axillay ln. Navablin started in Aug 2012 lumps in both areas went down almost immediatley. Tremendous constipation since any chemo was instituted but Navabline makes me feel full and hungray at the same time then 2to 3 days of uncomfortable gastric symp : reflux,chest wall pain , muscle spasms on this also are hard to bear, I only take over counter acetemiophen arthritis stenght for pain. it does not go away but it gets the edge off so i can work and drive. Navabline seems to be working well and if i stay on top of the coexisting issues e.g. gastric, i'm ok, i'm tired too but that is not an issue for me. i'm 54 and i've been on chemo drugs almost constantly for 2 years. Lost hair weight , but got them back. people who meet me are shocked that i look well and can keep a fulltime job and go the chemo tx.
