Hi Everyone,    

 

I had ER/PR+ HR2- stage 1A lobular cancer.  It got into both sentinenal nodes so my surgeon took out 20 additional lymph nodes.  None of those nodes had cancer in them.   I have gone through 1 cycle of Taxotere and Cytoxan.   The posibility of permanent hair loss and the neuropathy from the Taxotere has me a bit hesitant to continue this tretment plan.  I cuurently have neuropathy in one of my hands and the thought of that getting worse is a bit scary.     I went to see my oncologyist today and she suggested switcing treatment to CMF:  Cyclophosphemide, Methotrexate, Flourouracil.   

 

Has ayone out there had the CMF treatment?   I have read that this treatment has been around for over 30 years.   However that can mean that it is outdated.    Thanks.
