I was initially diagnosed Sept 11 with stage 1a, following surgery and was prescribed 6 sessions taxol/carbo 3 weekly. After 3 sessions I was admited to hosp with high temp and low white blood count, at this point saw different Dr who stopped the taxol as due to the early stage she said it wasn't needed.
All well until my second 3 monthly checkup and ca125 had risen to 54, subsequent CT showed recurrance in two lymph glands and a small nodule on my small bowel. I have recently undergone 2nd surgery as part of desktop 3 trial and all visible disease removed.
Next week I will begin a second round of chemo, Onc has again prescribed 6 treatments of taxol/carbo, this time all being well I will have the full course.
My question is, I see a lot of ladies on here who have weekly taxol rather than my 3 weekly, I thought as it's my second time round I would have had a variation in treatment to the 1st time. I mentioned about weekly treatments to my Dr but she just seemed to dismiss it and said I would be on 3 weekly. Is there any benefit to either treatment or are they as effective as each other?
Many thanks in anticipation of your help xx
