I am having A/C after having a full round of taxane.  I believe several women in my family have died after having A/C for aggressive triple-negative.  I have aggressive triple-negative with no metastasis.  Does anyone know of any chemo regimens beside A/C?  Does anyone know of any doctors (oncologists) who will do other chemo if A/C results are disappointing?  I live in Minnesota but will travel.

I'm not sure if this helps, but here is some information on chemotherapy options.  Are you getting neoadjuvant chemo?  What is the size of tumor?  Stage?

Yes, it is neoadjuvant -- I have not had surgery.  The tumor is about the size of a golf ball and I think stage 3.
