Thank you for posting your question. I hope you are OK.


I haven't had doxorubicin, but if no-one else has had experience with it, hopefully the below website can help with some information.


Have you asked your doctor or oncologist to see if they are aware.

I've also found the nurses who help delivery the chemotherapy to be very knowledgeable in the side effects, so don't forget to ask there too.


Best of luck!
