Does anyone know how long chemo drugs stay in your system? I am asking about long term. I am receiving 6 taxol/carbo treatments (have finished 4) and wanted to know how long it will take to feel like myself again? I feel better (not great) by my third week but then I have another chemo treatment. I have been told it may take as much as a year? I am glad to have these drugs and am thankful that I am responding well (my last ca 125 was 2.6 after 3 treatments) to chemo . My questions is how long before these drugs are out of my body? 3 months after the last treatment, a year, two years? I would appreciate your experiences and insight. Not much is written about this aspect of chemotherapy or maybe I am not looking in the right place. Any help would be appreciated.
