Chemo and Incontinence?

Can taxotere and cytoxan chemos lead to poor bladder control and bedwetting?
Has anyone had these side effects when being treated for breast cancer?

Did you ever get an answer to this question?  I stumbled across your post because I was wondering the same thing-except I am taking Taxol.
Thanks,
Lori

I've had taxotere adriamycin and cytoxin for breast cancer. I am now having some incontinence and think it may be part of the nerve  damage I've experienced in my hands and feet (numbness). I feel like it's not a very common side effect (if that's what it is). I also have a weak voice for about a month. I go back to the Oncologist next month for some answers.

I too stumbled across your post. I did cytoxin,adriamycin, FU5 agessively for 6mths. I'm have nerve damage in hands and feet as well as urinary incontinence. My primary just blew it off. I have read many women who've done chemo for breast cancer having these side effects.
