Survivor since 2011
they were very different for me. I had 4 of each. I was sick and worn out on AC, but it was easy for me to get up and exercise a couple of days later (walk or bike ride--nothing to caliber I had done before, but 30 minutes or so). It felt like I was out of shape, but it made me feel better. With Taxol, I felt fine the next day, actually felt sorta "great", but then my muscles and joints were so sore and stiff, that I had to stay home Thursday and Friday (treatment was on Tuesdays). Massage on Wednesday or Thursday made a HUGE difference, so if your hospital has it, I recommend it. Or find someone local that has experience with BC patients. It was harder to work out on Taxol, and the fatigue was building up, so I gained weight then. Like 10 pounds. I guess it's common for BC patients in chemo to gain weight, not lose it. It's frustrating b/c it doesn't come off easily since my body has been out of whack for a year, but I'm moving forward and trying to accept that it will take time to get my body back in shape. Best wishes to you and congrats on being halfway finished with Chemo!
