Bi weekly Taxol and hair loss

Just finished 4 CMF (cyclophos-phamide, methotrexate and 5FU) for Stage II Lobular CA with 1 lymph node. Will now start Taxol. I cold capped and shed 10 to 15 % of my hair.

My oncologist has given me the choice of 12 weekly Taxol or 4 dose dense Taxol every other week. I’m so wanting to get this over with. Has anyone has experience with dose dense Taxol x 4 and hair loss, side effects?
