Effect of discontinuing or changing final round of chemotherapy
if 5, not 6 cycles of taxol/carboplatin completed as adjuvant therapy for uterine cancer, how much would this impact long term prognosis? (uterine cancer with so minimal lymph node involvement that an exact count of cancel cells was provided.) Peripheral neuropathy is the overriding problem that makes me want to stop current level of treatment before last chemotherapy. Is any other less toxic solution available for a 6th and final round of chemotherapy?
