My cancer is showing progression.
Advertisements [?]
I've had nine cycles of chemotherapy (cisplatin and topotecan) and all prior scans had shown shrinkage. But this time, three cycles after the last scans, the tumors are bigger in my pelvic lymph nodes and lungs. So I meet with the doctor tomorrow to discuss switching to Taxol.

It's hard to remain optimistic at this point but I'm going to try. Have any of you or your loved ones successfully changed treatments like this?

Any experiences with Taxol?

Thanks! :hi:
