Have any of you lovely ladies had Taxotere. I developed an allergy to Paclitaxol on second chemo (on first line treatment as was diagnosed in May this year). ONC put me on Caelyx as well as Carbo after debulking op in August but after doing my research I came across Taxotere which is a Taxol same as Paclitaxol but less likely to cause an allergic reaction. Apparently its the compound they mix the chemo with for taxols that is most likely to cause the allergy. Taxotere is mixed with other less hypoallergenic substances. ONC has said I can have Taxotere or I can stick with the Caelyx but is not really advising me which is best. Nice guidelines recommend platinum based chemo (Carbo or Cisplatin plus Taxane but cant find specific info re Taxotere which is a Taxane for firstline but Caelyx is used for recurrence from what I can see.
Would appreciate your views/advice.
Love to all
