Topic: Taxotere No Problems at reduced Dosage
Recieved my second round of Taxotere at reduced dosage. So far no problem. Took filgrastim and antibiotic as prescribed days 5-10 and blood work was fine today. Also I got a copy of my CT Scan done on Friday. All appears clinically stable except a soft tissue tumor ajacent my esophgus and stomach. It grew 1cm in 3months. I said whow! there. I would like to see doc this week about radiation. If it worked on the other tissues and my liver and rib, then we need to take care of this pronto. Ha! nothing is pronto I know. But at least I see the doc on thursdays. It's like you have to tell the doctors want you want done or it don't happen or gets over looked. He will probally want to continue Taxotere again as well. That's fine but they can remove or abalate that tumor before it gets in to the esophagus or stomach. It seems these little cc buggers like to play hide and seek.
Take care All !
