Hi everyone.

I have seen some postings here that some have Taxol every week and some have the combo of Taxol and Carboplatin every three weeks like myself.

My surgeon/oncologist states they have seen very good results with the sandwiched therapy I am receiving. I was one post that another's doctor stated they have seen the best results with Taxol every week.

I would be interested in everyone's knowledge and experience on this?

Are those in NED (is that dormant or remission?) able to provide their feedback as well?

Healing and peaceful wishes to all.

Always Hopeful

I am receiving the taxol every week, as I stated in previous postings...my radiation will occur after the chemo.

I have an appt with my medical/chemo oncologist. I will ask her for the name of the studies that showed the improved effectiveness of the weekly taxol. I will also search for the info.

Peace and Hope,

JJ
