 3  Stage 4a ovarian Regimen of weekly Taxol for 18 weeks, Carboplatin added on the third week for 6 cycles. I am doing much better on the Taxol than the combo. Last week I began the second round with both drugs and felt like I'd been hit by a train. The major symptom is extreme fatigue. Physically tired and muscle fatigue. Some days it was difficult to climb a small set of stairs. Today I had just the Taxol, but had low white blood cell count and very low blood presdure. The dr. Finally approved the chemo, but I'm worried that I won't bounce back after the large dose in 2 weeks. I really dread showing up for that treatment as my oncologist informed me during my last visit that I would feel much worse as time progresses. F 50 2 months
