Thanks Nancy,

I'm guessing you had the regimen I am set for - 4 AC and then four Taxol/ Taxotere.

My current oncologist said that I probably would be all right if I decided to quit after the 4 AC, but she left the hospital for another position 3/23 so next Thurs. 3/29 I will see a new oncologist. She did tell me that she thought the new doctor would be more emphatic about continuing the additional treatment.

I suppose I will give it my best shot. Anticipation is worse than actuality - sometimes!

Again, this is a great site to get info.
Love and best wishes to all the contributors.
Jean

Jean...We don't like that word "probably" anywhere near our cancer treatment. We want to have the best treatment possible at any cost. You are right about my treatment plan. 4 A/C and 4 Taxol and radiation and Tamoxifen. Just finished the chemo part of treatment and will start radiation in 1 month. It seems that each Oncologist has a different treatment plan but you want the plan that gives you the most protection aganist a recurrance, even if it means more treatments. Post again and let me know what you have decided to do. Love and hugs, Nancy

Nancy, I too have been picked for a trial using taxotere and taxol. Does insurance cover both of these drugs? Patty
