Paclitaxol advice please

Hi everyone.  I have been having weekly Paclitaxol for the past 6 months and have tolerated this very well.  Had a bit of a celebration last week after my last treatment.  However, got an email from my oncologist on Monday saying that I need to continue with chemo until at least December.  Is this normal?  There was no explanation as to why and I gave had no scans in the past 3 months.

 

Has anyone else had Paclitaxol for longer than they originally signed for?  I'm not due to see my oncologist until mid August.  I have just started to return to work this week, now worried that the tiredness will get worse and i will be signed off again.

 

Any feedback will be greatly appreciated.  Thank you
