Taxol query

Last reply: 6 months ago

Hello all,
I met with consultant today to get my plan , I had originally thought I was going on AC first and then taxol, but am now going on taxol weekly for12 weeks with herceptin infusions every 3 weeks and then herceptin injections.
Could anyone please give me any advice regarding the weekly taxol , and how doable it is.
Thanks very much and good luck to all of you going through treatment.

Dear Dotgos

I am sorry you have this treatment ahead of you and we wish you the very best with it. One of the ladies in our Peer to peer

support group was on weekly taxol some time ago. If you would like to speak to her just phone our Nurseline at 1800 200 700 and we will arrange it.

Kind regards

Hi DotGos,

I got similar news some months ago. I thought I would have AC and Taxol but following surgery results I am having 12 weeks taxol followed by Radio Therapy and Hercepton injections. I’m on week 7 now and symptoms have been very manageable. I have lots of good days. The tiredness has been the main thing for me to manage. Adjusted to it now though. Everyone is different I know but from those I’ve spoken to who had AC and Taxol they tolerated Taxol much better. I hope your experience of it is not too tough. My experience has been a lot better than I anticipated and not too long more to go. Wishing you all the best with your treatment.
