3X FEC increased breast tumor and switched to weekly paclitaxel

I am going through a very tough time. All of a sudden was diagnosed with LABC stage 3. I only have one Primary tumor in the side of the breast near armpit and no breast tumor . It is rally very huge - 9 cms now.

 

T4bN1M0 meaning lymph node involved.

 

Initially it was around 7 cms and I was asked to start with NEO adj chemo. They put me on 3 X FEC and 3X docetaxel. Completed 3 rounds of FEC with all terrible SE's but it did nothing.

 

My Onco says that it is now increased by 2cms and is now 7 cms. Added to this I had biopsy site infection which has been giving constant oozing from it. 

 

They have now changed me to to weekly pacitaxel and I have completed one of it. Mine is ER+ / PR - / HER-2 - 

 

I am very worried about the situation. My onco says this might shrink the tumor. Has anyone went thru the same? Please advice
