What are the side effects of the treatments for fallopian tube carcinoma?

The medications used to treat fallopian tube cancer include paclitaxel and carboplatin, which are two chemotherapeutic agents that may cause side effects including tiredness, mouth ulcers, taste changes, diarrhea, hair loss, and easy bruising. You may also become anemic, meaning that your total number of red blood cells decreases. This may make you feel even more tired that you otherwise would. Numbness or tingling in your hands or feet, headaches, or joint pains may also occur.
