My dr wants me to do taxotere after my next and final round of AC, but I'm now reading that taxotere can cause permanent hair loss...anyone discuss taxol vs taxotere with their dr?  I feel that even a 6% risk of permanent hair loss is too much...starting to freak out here....

Paclitaxel = Taxol
Docetaxel = Taxotere

Benefits of Weekly Taxol in TNBC

Sequential doxorubicin plus cyclophosphamide followed by weekly paclitaxel is a reasonable adjuvant treatment option for triple-negative breast cancer, according to 12-year follow-up of the Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group's E1199 phase III trial evaluating optimal taxane type and scheduling in operable breast cancer. . .

. . .“[The data] support current practice for the use of a dose-dense schedule -- weekly Taxol in this study -- for improving outcomes, particularly for patients with triple-negative breast cancer, and the findings should be considered when selecting adjuvant therapy in this setting,”
