Saw My Oncologist yesterday. Wants to start me on Taxotere/CPT-11 chemo treatment on Tuesday. Anyone who has experienced this type treatment, any input would be appreciated. I have tried one round of Taxotere back in August early September and it wiped my immune system out within four days, Nutrophenia (sp) and had to do antibiotics and filgrastim injection for a week. Doc agreed to lower dosage this time and have antibiotics and filgrastim in my hands prior to starting. Hair falls out within to weeks and I just got enough back for a Christmas Photo. Wife is making appointment today for pics. Ha! I don't think she likes the shiny head. I told her no rush as I could wear a Santa hat. Most appropriate I think? I'm not going to diguise my hesitattion as that Taxotere is really high risk especially with liver tumor and use of previous platinum chemos, Well unless someone responds with some awful personal experience, I'm going to press on and give it a whirl. I got my hair clippers all charged up for the hair removal ceremony as I can't stand waking up with hair in my mouth and eyes. Bluck!
