Your Doctor will have to figure that out. The right drug is any drug the clear cell responds to. I have clear cell as well and luckily could take Taxotere. The trick with clear cell is with some people the clear cell is resistant to chemo. I had to have the name brand because of my MS. I did six chemos of that and Carboplatin. I responded well to chemo even though I am stage IIIc Clear Cell. I try to ignore a lot what I have read on the internet about clear cell most of it is out dated. Plus it does not matter what happens to someone else, what matters is how I react to the chemo. I had mild allergic reactions so they could give me I.V. benadryl. My throat got real itchy and swelled once. I did have every side effect but I now have forgotten how rough chemo was for me. I am ready to go again anytime they tell me its time. Avastin was suggested but I could not take it because of my MS.
I have read somewhere that if you have an allergic reaction to taxol they can administer it at a much slower rate and this works for some ladies.I would speak to you're Oncologist to see if this is an option for you.
Hi there, I too was a Stage 1A, Clear Cell. I had Carbo/Taxotere back in 2006 and then Carbo/Gezmar in 2011. Luckily I did not have a reaction, but I too have heard that your oncologist can do different techniques to administer it to avoid a reaction and also they will give you steroids, etc along with it. Best of luck to you!!
