It may contribute: Eye strain can cause nausea in some people, but it is unlikely to cause reflux / acid symptoms. Taking frequent breaks, where you look away from the screen or periodically close your eyes, and varying the distance to the screen can help prevent eye strain. Avoid getting too close to the screen. You may need an eye exam to see if glasses are needed for long term close work. ...Read more

I was told I have IBS-D but recently I have had severe burning in my stomach after eating. Can't finish a meal/nausea/indigestion. What could this be?

Call GI doc: Sounds like these are new symptoms. The GI doc needs to know about them as they could indicate an alternate diagnosis, or at least a separate diagnosis. Could be inflammation of the stomach for usual reasons (medication side effect, H.pylori infection) or indication of more extensive inflammation (Crohns disease for example) and a new evaluation is warranted. ...Read more

I have stage 4 tnbc  before i was to start AC chemo my platelets were too low 85.  Started Taxol (paclitaxel) for a week now my liver enzymes are too high 590 ?

Further eval: If platelets were low before starting, il'd worry that you have spread to the bone marrow. In that case, you would get treatment anyway, no matter what the counts, in hopes of clearing the marrow. If your liver enzymes are high, there may be liver metastases. I don't know your'e whole story, but i would strongly consider treating with something like Carboplatin and abraxane. Also check her2 again. ...Read more

Comp 16 weeks of taxol/herceptin .. diangosis with mult pe's recently and about to begin a/c chemo. Will this be possible with existing pe's in both lungs?

Yes: You have obviously survived the bilateral pulmonary emboli. You didn't mention being on Coumadin (warfarin) or any blood thinner but you should be if you are not(speak to your doctor). Hopefully, most of the clot on your lungs has dissolved. If you can't be on blood thinners for some reason, you could have a filter placed in your vena cava. Having cancer is a risk factor for having blood clots and pes. ...Read more

What is the role of Taxol (paclitaxel) in chemotherapy?

What is the role of Taxol (paclitaxel) in chemotherapy?

Kills cancer cells!: Taxol (paclitaxel) works by preventing cancer cells from reproducing themselves. In the picture you can see green "microtubules" that are pulling a cancer cell apart into two daughter cells. Taxol blocks microtubules, preventing them from being able to pull the cancer cell into two daughter cells. The cancer cell gets stuck trying to divide, and it dies. Taxol works for many cancer types. ...Read more
