sophiesdaughter Posted September 15, 2006 Share Posted September 15, 2006 The inevitable has happened: after my Mom has been on Iressa for 2 years, Iressa stopped working and she has progression. Her doctor would now like to put her on Taxotere. My Mom wasn't able to tolerate the first chemo that she took (navelbine and cisplatin), and although her doctor reassured her that Taxotere (every 3 weeks) is milder, I am still worried and would like to hear of people's experience with Taxotere vs. other chemos that they took. Thanks as always for all your help and support. Though we never expected Iressa to work indefinitely, it was still a shock to hear of her progression.
