What Sarcoma Cancer Survivors said about their Chemotherapies.

Gleevec, vomiting, diarra, swollen eyes and ankles, cramping in hands feet arms legs, fatique, from 10/19/07 till 5/2013. Didn't work for me after awhile.
Currently going through chemo... some of the side effects that I am experiencing are mouth sores, and sore GI tract. Definite tiredness, lunula turning black, of course hair falling out, complete loss of taste buds and smell during chemo but fine after.
Doxorubicin Cisplation Methotrexate Ifosfomide Etoposide
Had AIM protocol (Adriamyacin, Ifosfamide and Mensa) for all of 2007, then in 2010 I had Yondelis, a clinical trial, also for a year. The AIM made me lose all my hair, had frequent need for transfusions of blood and platelets and I had many infections. The Yondelis did not make me lose hair, but the other side effects were the same.
Chemotherapy started on 20th Dec 2008 and I chose to stop in June 2009 (I was meant to finish in Nov 2009, but when I found out my tumor was no longer shrinking, I physically could not deal with the side effects anymore). I lost my hair, which was by far not the worst side effect! Mouth sores, lost my sense of taste and smell. Horrendous constipation. Nauseous most of the time. Not able to eat. So completely exhausted, not even energy to stand up some days. Felt extreme cold, then major hot flushes, wake up drenched in sweat. Eyes always sore and watery. My chemotherapy was every 3 weeks, which took 5 days in hospital to administer IV - then every month when home I would spike a massive temp & have to be rushed into hospital for blood transfusions and isolated for neutronpenia! Chemo turned me into a shell of my former self, it destroyed my spirit and had me in tears most of the time. It was a hard, hard fight.
IE and VAC treatment every 3 weeks. Lost weight and all my hair/ body hair
I have Chemo once a month. The Chemo caused the whites of my eyes to turn Fire Engine Red. It was a reaction that none of the nurses had ever seen. I was given IV Benedryl. The dose of the medicine knocked my butt out. That was my first treatment on May 21, 2012. I was set for 3 treatments. My Oncologist was not sure if the Chemo would work to begin with. Within the first treatment I could tell a difference. I was amazed. I could actually feel the mass and it was smaller. So, Dr. M ordered another 3 treatments for a total of six. I lost all my hair, eyebrows and eyelashes. Hey, they will grow back one day. I don't mind. I love all the scarves and hats I have bought and been given.
Currenly going through Ewings Sarcoma protocol for Chemotherapy. 14 total cycles.
Chemotherapy lasted from July 2010 - August 2011 His chemotherapy consisted of Vincristine, Doxorubicin, Cyclophosphamide, Ifosfamide, and Etoposide. Some vomiting and lots of nausea.
Chemotherapy started in September 2011 and continued every three weeks either daily for a week, or a single day dose of VAC - crappy crappy side effects, where do I start......numb finger tips, constipation, hair loss, loss of taste buds, thrush in mouth, lack of concentration, sooooo exhausted after each dose and weeks later. It is very true that the chemo is so much harder than the cancer to deal with.
