benefit of TAC and kidney disease

I have 2 dcis triple negative tumors, node negative, Stage 1, one invasive.   What is the rate of recurrence with lumpectomy TAC treatment and radiation compared to the rate of recurrence without TAC?   I don't want to risk further damage to my kidneys (have Stage 3 chronic renal disease) unless the recurrence rate is significantly reduced.   Thank you.

I really think, Doris, that this is a question to ask your oncologist. We here are not even doctors, not to mention NOT expert specialists in chemotherapy. most general physicians would not be able to comment on your risk.

I am doing chemo right now with Abraxane and I have a 30 page, detailed, well "everything' about it, report. Not only did I have to read it close to three times but everything about it was contradictory and pretty much claimed to be 'unknown'

This may be a good question to ask on the 'expert forum' though. If you do, I advise you to make the question 'general' and not specifically about your own treatment because then they will not respond in any way that is likely to be helpful to you.

Thanks.   I've asked the oncologist as well as the nephrologist and got somewhat different answers which I found confusing.  So thought someone "out there" might be able to clear it up.   I'll have to find out about the 'expert forum'.
