Hi there.

The key side effects of Taxol are neutropenia, and neuropathy.  Neutropenia is the lowering of white blood cells which can result to infection.  Neuropathy is the affectation of nerves causing pain and numbness, usually over the hands and feet.  However, there can be side-effects unique to a patient and it all depends on the temporal relationship between the symptoms and the giving of the drug (like: does the symptoms come right after the drug administration? ).  There can be more unknown, rare side effects of chemotherapy rather than what is usually reported in literature, however, these are usually transient and generally harmless.  The cramping can be caused by hyperactivity in the intestines, or a problem with the nervous innervation of the intestines.  I suggest to have this examined by the oncologist or physician in charge for a more thorough examination.

Regards and God bless.
