After first 8 weeks on trial for Avastin & Ixempra combo...it's working! Largest node in chest went from 6.4 x 5.8 cm to 3.9 x 4.8 cm and the smaller nodules in lungs all showing decreases! Onc said this combo showing good results for previos taxol resistent TNBC. Had A/C x4 and Taxol weekly x 12 adjuvently back from Aug 07 to Jan 08.  I'll continue another  2 cycles ( 8 weeks) and go from there, but this treatment is doable!
