What side effects did you experience while on this medication?

Hi, I'm Frances M J.

Started receiving Doxil in July 07 after three new spots of cancer were discovered. Recived monthly treatments until April 09. Had some trouble with mouth ulcers and was very careful about how I took care of my hands and feet. Hands were very red but overall was not near as bad as the first treatments that I recieved. Had to stop treatment after blood work was bad.
