taxol for ascites symptoms

9 months ago I contracted peritoneal ascites associated with my breast cancer.  Drained twice then put on xeloda.  Ascites disappeared for 8 months and then stopped working.  I am now being put on weekly infusions of taxol.  Will this help kill the cancer cells again and give me the same results?   I am stage 4 lobular er pos,pr pos, her2 neg.   Have extended bone mets and have been on zometa for 2 years currently stable.  How long can taxol work for the ascites?
