Hi. was diagnosed just recently.
Starting my Chemo treatment tomorrow. My physician wants me to take Taxol.
I have chatted with another doctor who said that Taxotere is also a common drug to be used. I went back to my doctor and she was very unhappy with the fact I talked to other doctors. But on the other hand - she told me that both drugs are fine and its a "trial and error" process where we need to find to which drug my tumors reacts better.
By the way - I didn't pay anything to the other doctor... I am on this app called BELONG
for cancer patients. which is pretty cool.
Anyhow - I don't like the fact that its a "trial and error"... but seems like in many other cases its how things are. Starting with Chemo X... not responding ? OK. Lets go to Chemo Y... but time is the one resource I assume I don't have enough of...
How do you make a decision here ? How can I be sure my physician is doing the extra mile for me and not just following the protocol ?
Thank you all.
