Ouch! Abraxane Side Effects

Today I have a new side effect from Abraxane, which is the chemo I am presently on, my fingernails are coming off the nail bed. Pretty gross and is sometimes painful. Sadly it is primarily on the right hand so even typing this entry hurts a little. The positive aspect of this new thingy is that it doesn’t always hurt, just comes and goes. Still have nose, eyes, voice problems but they are just nuisance side effects and I’ve discovered ways of making myself more comfortable with those. Basically I’ve done very well on this drug and certainly have been able to continue my everyday activities.
