Cyclophosphamide (Cytoxan) Chemotherapy Chemotherapies

What Cyclophosphamide (Cytoxan) Chemotherapy Cancer Survivors said about their Chemotherapies.

Began chemotherapy in 3'06. Side effects were mouth sores, nausea and vomiting. Bone pain, neuropathy in fingers and feet. Nail beds turned black.
Adriamycin/Cytoxan/Taxotere P.O. 1st Treatment 10/16/06
I had 5fu, Methotrexate and Cytoxan. I had the 5fu and Methotrexate in an IV push the first and second Tuesday of each month. The third week I took Cytoxan pills and rested the fouth week. This was for a total of six months.
2004.-I received quimo scheme CHOP (ciclosfamida -Vincristina -Adriamicina - Prednisona. 2006.- 2nd. line of quimo. with scheme ESHAP: Etoposido - Platino - Ara-C-Dexametasona
3 chemos, neo-adjuvant, before surgery, effectively reduced tumor size. 1 chemo after surgery. Side effects: nausea and dizziness.
Well, chemo sucks. What can I say? I had 8 heavy duty treatments, spaced 3 weeks apart. The first 3 were AC, the next 4 were Taxol. It kicked me in the butt, but I never threw up!
lots of dates, spinal chemo right now are every three months and that causes head ach pretty bad for her and also some nausea vincrisine she gets once a month and that hurts her jaw arms and knees. mostly the joints. mercaptiprine, is every day, that just gives her a weird rash. methotrexate makes her sleepy
Nausea, fatigue/sleepiness, "Chemo brain" (inability to concentrate), dry skin, no nail growth, hair loss. January - May as of now
Started chemo June 8 2006 and finished up Sept. 28. 2006. Side effects weren't to bad. Just did what I was suppose to so I wouldn't have many.. Biggest side effect.. Baldness but I got through that too.
Rituxan 2001, Rituxan CHOP 2002, Rituxan 2003, TRM-1 (clinical trial) 2004-2005, Rituxan/Doxil 2006-2007. I have never reached a remission "yet" still hopeful!
Start Chemo May 18th 2007 Cisplaton and Etoposide
6 Treatments - 3 week cycle 3 - FEC 3 - Taxoteer Sept. 7, 2006 through Dec. 21, 2006
It was called cef (which is cefuroxime, epirubicin, and cyclophosphomide). It is used only in a couple of Canadian provinces as it is very expensive.
Blood work and chest xray September 11, 2007 Bone scan September 17, 2007 Port installed in right chest area September 18, 2007.

12 rounds of chemo
AC dose dense,then taxotere all for 5.5 months.Lots of lousy side effects you name it I had it!
Vomiting, hair loss, fatigue, mouth sores, reduced immune function.
Started AC on 12/12/07. That was fine. Had a reaction to Leukine (sp) now I'm Neupagen daily. No problems there.
Jan 22/08 *Just Started CAF (Cytoxan,Adriamycin,Fluorouracil-5-FU) dose dense - 2 week x 4 cycles. *Taxol + Herceptin for 6 to 8 months
6 treatments from March 3, 1994 to June 29, 1994. Started with Taxol Study. Received high-dose Cytoxan 3980 mg and Adriamycin 74.6 mg for 2 cycles. Except for the 1st and the last, blood transfusions were required after every treatment due to low hemoglobin. I developed a blood clot in my right arm shortly after the first blood transfusion in April and had to be hospitalized and put on coumadin for 3 months. Had to be taken off Taxol Study because I could not take high-dose Cytoxan/Adriamycin and Coumadin. I was given Cytoxan 995 mg, 5-FU 995 mg and Adriamycin 99.5 mg for the next 4 treatments. The Adriamycin damaged my heart muscle. Other side effects were nausea, some vomiting, sores in mouth, diarrhea, heartburn, fatigue and complete loss of all hair. 6 treatments from January 20, 2006, to June 2, 2006. I was given a CMF combination of 1200 mg of Cytoxan (Cyclophosphamide), 80 mg of Methotrexate and 1200 mg of Fluorouracil (5-FU). This bout with chemo was much easier than the first. I also had a blood clot in my lung in February, 2006, and was hospitalized for 7 days and put on coumadin for 18 months. Other side effects were minor nausea, fatigue, sore mouth, minor diarrhea and only thinning of my hair. I don't know which one but one of the chemo drugs damaged my right eye and I am still having problems with it. The worst thing to happen was the death of my husband and my boston terrier dog in May during this bout of chemo.
6 treatments of R-CHOP, 3 weeks apart.
Pending. I have only been told of what the drugs of choice will be and I can plan on being bald.
Cytoxan and taxotere
10/05-08/06 adriamyacin, very weak
September 2007-February 2008 - fatigue was the worst part; no nausea; started losing hair on 13th day after first treatment. Hair began to return about 3 months after chemo and was long enough to be a "really short hairstyle" after 3 more months.
I had every side effect in the book! You name it I had it! Gained 20 pounds on the steroids.
5/28 first treatment of clinical trial Gemzar with Avastin- was on this treatment for 6 months, it immediately reducedthe tumor on my liver and eventually totally got it. unfortuantely I had to stop Avastin due to high blood pressure and I experienced toxicity in my lungs with the high dose of Gemzar and had to stop. After 6months another liver tumor appeared. Now Phase One trial Irinotecan with PARP inhibitor. So far has shrunk the liver in my tumor in half.
6 cycles chemotherapy begining 11/12/07 complete hair loss, mouth sores, black nail beds, weight gain, inflamation, fatique, everything tastes like lead. Joint pain from Neulestra shot.
Got temporary remission during some 16 months of various drugs, but no lasting remission
GoSH, so many. Six cycles of RCHOP. side effects... 1) affected my eyesight since the 3rd cycle, never got better. It was the first time i feel how its like to be a blind person. Luckily was blind for only a day, and got better but never totally cured. 2) Shingles! yes i repeat shingles! its seriosly the worst thing to get when ur immunocompromised!!!the itch is so intense! 3) FATIGUE--> never seem to end, but sometimes i think its because im lazy
Started first round of AC on June 12th....will continue 3 more rounds and then on to Taxol.
4 cycles of chemotherapy ending in late August, radiation to follow depending on how the cancer responds.
Dec. 19 2003 - Feb. 27 2004. First-line, dose-dense chemo. Taxotere, Cytoxan and Adriamycin. Horrible horrible horrible. Felt godawful (aching fatigue unrelieved by sleep, and absolutely no energy) for years afterwards. I don't think I'd do it again.
NOW ON ABRAXANE AND AVASTIN CHEMO SIDE EFFECTS WEAKNESS, FATIGUE, PERIPHERAL NEUROPATHY , NAILS PEELING OFF FINGERS, NOSE BLEEDS - ALL SOUND BAD BUT ARE TOLERABLE
First Chemo 9-8-2008. Side Effects - Pain, joint and bone pain, can't taste anything, headaches, bodyaches and my skin hurts and weight gain from the steroids.
I had my 4 cycles of chemotherapy a month after my surgery and had the neupogen injection.
Started Chemotherapy on September 5, 2008; Taxotere, Carboplatin, and Herceptin - originally planned for 6 rounds (every three weeks). I completed 2 rounds and then my doctor stopped(my mass grew back). Side Effects - Nausea, diahrea, extreme fatigue, bone/joint pain, flu-like symptoms, hot flashes, numbing, weird taste in mouth, loss of appetite, hair loss I then did weekly Taxol and Herceptin started 10/17/08 for 6 weeks. Side effects included nausea, occasional diahrea, fatigue, muscle and joint pain, neuropathy, hot flashes. I started 5FU, Cytoxan, & Epirubicin on 12/02/08 (4 rounds every three week) while continuing with weekly Herceptin for 12 more weeks. Side effects - Nausea, vomiting, diarhea, hot flashes, mouth sore, fatigue, loss of appetite. I started Tykerb in Feb 2009. I will continue with Herceptin for at least 7 more months after surgery.
Hair loss Fatigue mouth thrush low blood counts infection/ fever
Four months of dose-dense chemotherapy along with a shot of Neulasta after each session.
4 cycles dose dense Doxorubicin and Cyclophosphamide, then 4 cycles dose dense Paclitaxel to start 12/09/08
Chop 2002 Cop with Rituxan 2008. Hair loss, numbness (not bad this time), fatigue, insomnia from Prednosone.
TAC protocol. 6 rounds every 3 weeks. I refuse most of the pre medications (unless I need them) and ended up not needing any side effect meds my last 2 rounds. I'm having a great reaction to the chemo and my doctor is impressed with how I am weathering each round of chemo. He is shocked that my White and Red Blood cells are doing so well and I ended up being able to navigate the nausea without medications - which means no constipation!!! The side effects range from liberating (no hair, chemo brain, slowing down, other people cooking for me) to pain-in-the-ass (constipation from the zofran, hungry from the steroids, no nose hairs, sensative gums, run over with a truck feeling from the neulasta) to the hysterical (I'm really good at the 'Old Man from Flordia Suffle' while I wait for my WBC and RBC to come back on line!)
i was supposed to get 8 chemo's. but i only received 7 because my blood count wasn't up in time. i had "Vincristine" (iv)every week. Cyclophosphamide(iv)every 6-8 weeks. Cisplatin (iv), every other chemo, and Lomustine (pill) every chemo.
Four cycles, last one January 28. Mostly fine, except I learned too late that even though I feel fine physically, it doesn't mean I can do all the things I used to do like shoveling. I really slammed myself a couple of times by trying to do too much. Constipation was the worst side effect, but Smooth Move tea works great. The nausea was tolerable, until I overdid it physically, then I felt like I was on an oceanliner in a hurricane.
Port-a-cath installed in May. What a joy that was! First of 4 treatments of cytoxin & adriamycin started the last of May. Loved that "dangerously red cocktail" called adriamycin. Sinuses were & still are all messed up from cytoxin. Neuropathy in hands, feet & legs to this date (2-09). Thankful for neurontin and cold sheets feel so good. Will it ever leave me in peace? Scalp got sore & out came the hair on Father's Day Happy Father's Day, Troy! We went out to our deck after church & 14 year old daughter cut & hubby shaved. POOF! No nausea thank God for Zofran!! I felt better during & right after chemo (Aug '05)than I do now. What's up w/that?! So, I deal as best I can.
treatments spanning over 4 months. Felt poisoned and beat up the entire time.
First round of chemo on 7 May 09 Second round of chemo on 1 Jun 09 Third round of chemo scheduled for 21 Aug 09 My doctor is using a new "sandwich" approach to treatment. 2 rounds of chemo > then 25 days of radiation > then 2 more rounds of chemo. This is new and apparently works better than all chemo then radiation. I am in control and working to erradicate the cancer via chemo and radiation.

The 4 "red devil" treatments were the worst & those neulasta shots! I had an allergic reaction to Taxol. Really bad! So they switched me to Tacrete. Easier to handle physically but took longer in between chemos.

CVP + R - 6 cycles and then two years of the "R" (Rituxan). stomach pain, diarrhea, fatigue for a week. Also, I receive an injection of Neulasta after each chemo which gives me bone pain but I am learning ways to stop that too and now go in for hydration the day after. I medicate myself for a few nights after the injection with Benadryl and Tylenol.
Chemo started 1/2. Four treatments with the last one being 3/10. Severe allergic reaction to the Taxol landed me in the hospital in February after the second treatment. Had to stop Taxol and go on adriamycin instead with fewer side effects.

Chemo sucked! It's a crazy way to slowly poison yourself and destroy every muscle that you have spent the last ten years working on. Chemo is barbaric and I will cheer the day when this is gone. Obviously, I don't work or support any drug companies.
