I saw my Oncologist this week.  So I will be having chemo over an 18 week period.

9 weeks of Paclitaxel (Taxol) and carboplatin (PC) once a week 

9 weeks of Epirubicin and cyclophosphamide (EC) once every 3 weeks

She said I'm healthy (apart from being fat and being on mild blood pressure medication) so this has informed her decision.  

I actually thought it was funny that they weighed me for dosing.  It's like a veterinary practice because they dose according to an animal's weight.  She said, yep, it really is that crude, unfortunately.  

She sent a request for a chair and the request for an MRI is being reviewed.  She reckons I'll start week after next.
