I would like to find out if anyone out there has been on Taxotere treatment. My mom has been fighting this disease for 5 years now with variations of chemothereapy. This is her brief history: Hysterectomy Aug 2000, carboplatin/taxol
then remission for 6-8 months. Then on Doxil, topotecan and up to just recent on Gemzar. Her Ca125 levels are up an down no greater than 140 and no less than 90. CT and pet scan do reveal some small spot near esophagus < than 1 cm. Doctor suggest to put her now on Taxotere and consult a Radiation Specialist? Any input will be greatly appreciated. She is 73yrs and a fighter.
Also, any hair loss with this treatment? Her hair has been growing while on Gemzar.This will devestate her if taxotere causes hair loss.
Thank you all. God Bless
