    Hi I'm stage 4 with boney mets 2.5 years in treatment and I just started halaven a week ago today. I was so sick all week and my hair is starting to thin. However it's not near as bad as some others I have taken so I'll take these side effects and pray it does the trick. Praying for your comfort.

      Sheila thanks for your response. This drug is so new that most people have not heard of it. I have a local recurrence and had nine pos lymph nodes removed but mine is an aggressive cancer so my doc wanted to try this. He has high hopes for halaven so I hope it works for us both. Having trouble with my counts and did not have that 4 yrs ago with taxotere although the taxotere left me permanently bald. Very little hair grew back and that fell out on day 10 after 1st halaven. My doc thinks this is one of the best new drugs out there. Good luck and god bless . Keep me posted how you are doing hugs v
