: This is a message from my cousin
: Urgent ! Searching for information from Cancer patients who have experience
: with Taxotere Chemotherapy for advanced lung cancer. My mother must decide
: before June 22nd whether or not to take Taxotere , which may extend her
: survival time or it could severely weaken her condition almost immediately
: and shorten her survival time.
: Any information that may assist her in making this decision would be greatly
: appreciated. Please respond ASAP.
gary, i am not a cancer patient, but do have information on some of these drugs. first, can you explain why she has to make her mind up by june 22? dr.s usually don't give deadlines, and why would a dr. consider putting her on something that might immediatley shorten her life? Most any doctors won't consider killing the cancer at expense of killing the patient? If you enlighten us more maybe someone might be able to help
