The difference most likely lies with the choice of your Oncologist for treatment of your type of cancer. I had 4 Treatments of Adriamycin/Cytoxan followed by 4 treatments of Taxol with 2 weeks between each treatment. My Oncologist prescribed this course of treatment followed by 35 Radiation Sessions. Since I have complete faith in her, I never questioned her in regards to alternate treatments. The actual difference between the two mentioned treatments would have to come from an Oncology Specialist. Don't be afraid to ask -- you should have all the facts -- after all, you are the one fighting this battle! Good Luck!
Hi, I agree with Jennymiller, I was diagnosed with Triple negative breast cancer, so my oncologist felt this course of treatment was for me: 4 treatments of (Adriamycin) followed by 12 treatments of (Taxol) I still have 4 treatments left. After only two treatments of (Adriamycin) my tumor already started to shrink. Ask alot of questions, best of luck to you!!!
