I stayed in Seattle at Picozzi's request. But, I have to tell you that personally I think any good ocologist can administer gemzar and Taxotere. I was on a schedule of once a week for two weeks on and one week off. Mine was always on Wednesday so on the off week I had really about 10 days off at a time ( I think) and I flew back and forth to Florida on those days to see hubby and doggies. I can't remember the exact protocal but it's the same as GTX without the X part. Picozzi does not believe the Xeloda does anything to help this regime, so he admits it - he does use Xeloda on other protocals I think.

Find a realy good oncoligst and I will try to find out my exact protocal. I know I did have a steriod with each treatment and a baby Benydril - and I slept like a baby through the intire treaments each time. I think it was that Benydril that made me sooo tired. Other than that I did really well on it.

Love MG
