Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (3 years ago):

  • Tceleste on Nov, 25, 2011:

    I became very agitated on taxol and carboplatin. I also take Ativan rarely. I take zofran, claritin and Neulasta. I take Mobic (meloxicam) and percocet for pain. I have continuously moved even when I am so tired I can barely chew. It is not a seizure type movement. I am either cleaning, organizing or planning to clean and organize. I feel as though I have been given a nesting hormone, when in fact all estrogen has been taken from me and I had both ovaries and my complete omentum removed. My son commented on me as well as several friends. The thing I think about is that for at least 2 and a half years I was very sick. By the time I was diagnosed I was already Stage IIIb. I feel like my old normal energy is returning since I had so much cancer removed by surgery and now the chemo is working because my hair is falling out, which to me is reassuring. I have to disclipine myself to rest and not be always organizing my house. I think the lady who helps me clean is going to fire me because by the time she gets here there is little to do. If I were not as disclipined as I am about making myself rest, this could be a bigger problem.
