My mom has been put on TAXOL. Not a combination of chemos, just TAXOL, because she got so sick with two chemos. Anyway, she has extensive sclc and I want to know how good is the TAXOL? Has anyone here had it? Does it work? What are the side effects? Do you think this is going to help her. She has a spread to her liver and brain and spine and always the tumors shrank while she was on chemo and now her doctor is going to try this.

Appreciate any help you can give me.

My dad just started taxol on Wednesday. And whole brain rad. yesterday. I don't know alot about it except what I've read on their website. Does anyone else have experience with this chemo? I am praying that this works for us.

My mom has been on the combo Taxol/Carbo for 11 treatments now for NSCLC. Initial tests show it is shrinking the tumors. We will find out more next week. The side effects have been minimal for her. She is starting to get some tingling in her hands and legs (one of the side effects is nerve damage), but overall she has handled it well.
