    It’s going on another year of labs and doctors. I’m 70 now, and thought these were the “golden years.” Nothing golden about them for me. My lack of platelets and Coumadin leave my body looking like I get beaten up every day!

    My last Taxol treatment was June 15, 2012. I knew going into the treatment that I might have some problems with neuropathy or some tingling in my fingers and toes and bone pain. My NP and Oncologist told me they would start me on a medication on Gabapentin that would help. By the time I was finished of four rounds of Taxol I was taking high d…
