I have bought my ticket and now I am just waiting in fear at the station. Am I just imagining it or is it more stressful second time round ? I have my prelim talk , ECG, X Rays etc next week and start early the following Mon morning. Have I now learned too much and question more since first time round ?
My BIG question is why am I being given Carboplatin only ? The CNS just told me that Taxol is too severe even though I tolerated it very well last time. Anything I have read indicates that the combination of Carbo and Taxol has better outcomes for recurrence especially as I am not Carbo resistant . Does anyone out there have experience of Carbo only for second time round ? I forgot to ask if I am getting a stronger dose of Carbo than I would with the combination.
I would be so grateful for your thoughts on this. Being a morning grouch the early start will almost finish me off so if I have one less thing to worry about that would be great. If anyone has experience of Carbo only and why it is an option please let me know. It will really set my mind at rest. Thanks all you lovely ladies
