Yes, I get the same thing. I think the taxol works on cutting off blood supply and also causes some pain where there was cutting and where there is a tumor. But, it is only my guess.

thanks kayandok,
the ist time i had carb and tax was after initial debulking so i always had ab pain from surgery . this time it is so strange because it feels like an incision but there is no incision. when i asked my dr he wasn't really sure what causes the pain other than that chemo in gen causes pain, but i was surprised he hadn't heard that complaint before . i certainly have scarring and adhesions from 3 previous surgs. so maybe the chemo is aggravating these lesions. thanks for your reply. no one else seems to have experienced this .
