Re: Paclitaxel

Many thanks SallyG63. She started Chemo again on Friday. Hopefully she will tolerate it well.

Re: Paclitaxel

I can't comment on effectiveness but it is very well tolerated so fairly easy to cope with. I'm a third of the way through my 12 weeks worth with no ill effects.

Hi CLJ,

I'm sorry to hear you and your partner are going through this. If you would like to speak to one of our specialist breast care nurses about paclitaxel, you can reach them on 0808 800 6000.

Take care,

Becca at Breast Cancer Care.

Paclitaxel

Hi everyone

 

Does anyone have any experience with paclitaxel. I would like to know how effective it is.

 

My partner was diagnosed with stage 3 triple negative IDC in July 2017. She started EC chemo sessions in September, but the cycles were stopped in November because the tumour wasn't responding to treatment. Her medical team proceeded with a mastectomy and removal of 12 lymph nodes. About a month after radiotherapy earlier this year we discovered that the cancer is recurrent. This time there is also low volume metastatic disease in both lungs.   

 

My partner is due to start chemo again, but this time with paclitaxel. 

 

Many thanks.
