Hi...never got a response from ayone who had an experience w/ Topetecan(sp?) as secondary chemo after first round failed...DR. Made us feel that it would not "probably work" since first round of 2 preferred chemo drugs" resulted in growth of cancer...not remission...Mom finished first round of Topotecan (5 days) about 10 days ago...has been her old self...energized ...these past 5 days...except for today...started getting very chilled...weaker...going for blood count tomorrow...such a roller coaster...any experience w/ this chemo would be a great help...thanks in advance...as i read the messages...i feel that i am no longer alone...:) thanks for that!
