New treatment

Hi, supposed to start a new treatment next week with carboplatin and taxol, but I’m worried about the taxol and getting a bad reaction to it. Have done carboplatin,etoposide and nivolumab but it didn’t work and l was stopped then l had carboplatin and etoposide for 3 days and went nutrophenic, hospitalized and that was stopped, now doctor wants to start this new treatment.Has anyone had a bad reaction to this treatment please? I have stage 4 sclung cancer spread to my lymph nodes,spine and recently did gamma knife radiotherapy for brain mets.
