gail p-m Posted July 21, 2003 Share Posted July 21, 2003 From what I know, most people get 6 rounds of chemo. I just wondered how many rounds of chemo before new scans are done to see the effectiveness of it? How many rounds of chemo are usually needed to show some result? For instance, if someone has no change after 3 rounds, does that mean the chemo should be changed or might it be effective after 5 rounds. (I have so much to learn; thank goodness for this message board!!!!!!) One more question while I'm here == how do the doctors determine which chemo. to give? I've noticed many people get the Carbo. The other chemo is often Taxol, for some people Taxotere.... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
