Hi there.Thank you for your question.I will be helping you out with your concerns today.
I am pretty sure that the effectiveness of taxol is not the issue here.
This usually is the case with almost any chemotherapeutic agent.
Initially, a patient has more side effects and then gradually, side effects become less frequent as their body gets used to the medication and reacts less, which is what I think has happened with your mom.
You can rest assured that the chemotherapy is working and is not ineffective, it is just that her body has become more resilient after the initial doses.
