Only Taxol

It looks like I will need some maintenance chemo and last time I spoke to the oncologist he had mentioned perhaps doing a low dose of just Taxol. Has anyone had this? Are the side effects less than with carbo/taxol. My hair is starting to grow in nicely will it fall out again?

I already had 8 rounds of carbo/taxol BEFORE surgery. My surgery went well and pathology report did NOT show any spread..should I still get this extra chemo?

Lot of women get the maintance chemo and do very very well. Good luck in your next line of action.
