Tomorrow I start my new treatment, Halaven (eribulin). I also found a good article on WebMD called Breast Cancer Drug Eribulin Extends Survival.
Halaven was very recently studied in metastatic breast cancer and approved by the FDA. I am most worried about the side effect of my peripheral neuropathy worsening, when it has improved so much over the past ten months but hasn't completely resolved. You can be sure I will keep Dr G posted if I develop more numbness in my feet!
Other side effects include the usual: low white (82%) and/or red cell counts (58%), fatigue (54%), nausea (35%) etc. 45% had hair loss, but this is the least of my concerns. I've been bald before...
Here's hoping for a highly effective and very tolerable treatment.
