Worried! New bone mets and bone marrow mets

I thought I just had a little progression in my bones but now bone marrow has been affected. Platelets sitting at 55. Should be up at least 100. Everything else okay. 

Onc says if this weekly taxol doesn’t work nothing will! Pretty scared. Have been healthy and stable for 3.5 years. Have heard taxol doesn’t work for some people. Anyone else had success with it?

Hi Mulligans


I’m on paclitaxol for secondary breast cancer in the liver and bones and now in bone marrow. my platelets have dropped to 65 and keep dropping. Have you had your chemo cancelled because your platelets are below 100?  I’ve had two cancelled but have insisted on the others going ahead because I’m worried about not receiving any treatment. Would be great to hear from you. Hugs xx
