Discussions that mention topotecan

Cancer: Lung board

I did not see this posting until now and you know Stan's onc says his severe fatigue and weakness is from the Topotecan. Are Joe's blood counts good?? Stans were so bad they would not let him go home until he received 2 units of blood and he still is not strong. He still has not showered today and now has a very small appetite. The doctor told us that this chemo is brutal on the body. But...I have never heard of a Carnitine Deficieny...wish I could help.
