Vicky- So sorry to hear this, but it sounds like the dr. is doing right by going back to taxol, since that worked so well before ... i am wishing you an easier time ahead. hang in there, we're all with you.... i know it's so dissapointing to hear 'more chemo' when you want/need a break ... when they increased my plan by about 3 months i was SO down...but you'll get thru it.
Vicky: I am so sorry to hear that the new med didn't work. At least you had a good response from the taxol and it was still an option for you to take. I know how difficult it is to accept more chemo. I have been on weekly chemo for almost 2 yrs now and when I get a break from the Navelbine, it is like a big gift. Then, usually about 3-4 wks, when my CEA count goes up, I have to go back on the Navelbine and it is such a downer. Hang in there. Please watch the neuropathy. My onco was very conscious about this and would stop the taxol for a couple of weeks to let my feet and fingers have a chance to get back to normal.
Hang in there. It is worth it!
