Hi Ladies, I have been to my check up today with oncologist. He is stopping the Avastin because he finds that two years is now the appropriate cut off time. This gives the body a chance to recover and it is also a fall back if I need it again. He would hope that I stay stable for a while. Last scan was stable and he is happy with that, Back for review in February, I asked him about metaformin and ibuprofen and he said there are no studies he has read to indicate that either is of any benefit to those already diagnosed so for that reason he is not in favour. So I am drug free after two years, a long time really when you think about it. We cant foretell the future just hope, hope has to be maintained. I actually felt this kind man had worked all weekend, he was so tired. It is not an easy job to have and it has to be stressful. I have problems accessing the Ovacome site and they are really trying to sort it, unless I changed my settings in error, anyone else here have same problem or is it my computer destroying powers acting up? I wish everyone well, Joan
