Re: [MOL] chemo treatment



My Dad has been on low dose (90mg Taxol/Carbo)  since Feb with one  session
of high dose (330mg)every 3 wks for 4 times. The low dosage had already
shown on CT Scans to be shrinking spots in left lung. He had NO side effects
on low dose  but couldn't take the effects of higher dose (he's 81 y/o) so
went back to low dose and scans continue to show shrinkage. Onc told him
there was no medical advantage to higher dose 3 wk tx except for his
convenience.  If your Onc agrees with this I know Daddy would sure recommend
the lower dose.  Love & Prayers to you.   Pat Kimmi-KS
