I just completed 5 rounds of Taxol & Carboplatin. I am in remission. My oncologist suggested I try a Taxol maintenance dose for three treatments because it showed prolonged remission in ovarian cancer. Since I have significant peripheral neuropathy from the Taxol, he also recommended the option of Carboplatin only for an additional 3 treatments. Is anyone familiar with the Taxol study or on a Taxol maintenance regimen? Has anyone heard of taking Carboplatin alone to prolong remission? I appreciate your advice. I have uterine cancer, but my oncologist explained that advanced uterine cancer behaves like ovarian cancer. Thank you for your input.
