Hello Atch,

I just wanted to take a moment to stop by and welcome you to our forum.

I'm sorry to hear you are experiencing unpleasant side-effects from your medication. Have you spoken to your doctor about this? If you haven't perhaps this is something to consider doing on your next appointment with them.

Also, feel free to give our cancer nurses a call if you feel like talking to someone medically trained might help, they're available on this phone number 0808 800 4040, Monday - Friday between 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.

Best wishes,
