16 Jun 2012 Although Abraxane has seemed to slightly reduce the tumours in my liver, it is the most debilitating of all the treatments I have had thus far.(7 over 11years) It changed my positive outlook apart from causing me almost constant pain and fatigue. I usually respond well and feel better after 6 cycles, but I seem to be worse (generally) than ever. My Tumour Markers are sky high despite the improvement shown in the radiological tests. My doctors want me to continue but for the first time ver I think I will have to refuse any more as I don't feel my liver can take any more (Liver enzymes are also very high) nor can I !

22 Sep 2010 This drug is efficient but it causes fatigue. In addition, I have to make lab exams regularly and it is expensive. I would not recoemment it to a user.
