So far 2 docs. Advised chemo as the next step to distaste stage Iv PCa withsny many widely distributed mets. Their protocol is 6 sessions 3 weeks apart. Are there other effective protocols to get the most effect but the least amount of docytaxel, to do its job but limit long term side effects? Also, and this in minor compared to my first question, do cold caps work? If so what kind? My dad is a humble man, and has always had a bald spot. However, as someone with illnesses I noticed a change in my perspective from when I was sick and people couldn't tell to being visibly frail. It is this that we all wish to avoid. Plus he is naturally very hairy and I know the loss on whole body will be startling enough. So I am just curious as to Different Protocals , how to Minimizing Hair Loss and personal experiences with docytaxel .
