Topic: Taxol?

Hi everyone. Has anyone had experience with taxol? My oncologist switched me due to nausea and pain I lost 30lbs! Apparently it's supposed to be easier on the stomach but I don't know how well taxol works for bile duct cance. Every site says it's good for breast cancer. Hopefully it will help. So tired of throwing up and being sick. I wish there was a cute for this illness.

Dear Lost Soul, don't know enough about chemo but truly hope this new one doesn't have all those side effects. I am sure you will hear from some of our peeps on Taxol and wishing better times ahead.

Re: Taxol?

Dear Christine,
Everyone is different. Some people may have favorable results on one chemo regime while others may not. In our case, our son tolerated Taxol very well with few side effects, except for hair loss. Unfortunately, it was not very effective in slowing down his disease process. Then again, neither was cis - gem or oxal & xeloda. Again everyone is different & you may do well with Taxol. We (as most others on this cite) are firm believers in second opinions. Good luck in your journey. God Bless.
