My mom 69 years old had mastectomy on 17-11-12 and the report indicatestriple TNBC grade-2 on right breast, with out involvement of lymph nodes.(T1N0M0).Around 36 lymph nodes removed with aux. node. The tumor size is 1.8cm max.The drain tubes are still on draining around 2oml/day after 4 weeks. most probably the tubes shall be removed on 18-12-12.
The oncologist planned for 6 cycles @3weeks with PACLITAXEL and EPIRUBICIN combination of chemo stating from 22-12-12 and No Radiation required. I am really scared about the side effects of chemo.Please advise me:
1. Whether any body used the above drug combination if so how are the results
2.Whether I can manage the side effects.
3. How to know whether I am reponding to the treatment.
4. Due to side effects if the chemo is delayed in between the cycles and what will be the complications if the chemo is dis continued.
Please give frank opinion.
