Hello, in summary I was diagnosed 2 years ago, 2b HGS, usual surgery then chemo. My ca 125 @ diagnosis was 75. Well since but ca 125 starts slowly creeping. Last CT july 2020 clear. Usual and fab onc on sick leave, temp guy advised raise likely due to me having covid... then likely due to pfizer jabs, wouldn’t be concerned unless it doubled.... it doubled on last test to 64. ( last month). Pains in rt side, USS no abnormality , just had news today CT shows small nodule recurrence in peritoneal area, liver capsule and diaphragm. Bugger!
Onc suggests either tamoxifen ( which i have seen used in breast cancer often but not ovarian?) and scan in 3 months or chemo of carbo/ caelyx. My choice. They may aswell be asking me what way I would drive to the moon😂. Also possibly then a Parp if chemo works.
So has anyone had this chemo, is is doable ( I was really ill on carbo/ taxol) , anyone just had tamoxifen with decent results? Apparently surgery not option as small nodules but in very difficult to reach position. I am 55, just retired and fit. Boat load of trips/ holidays/ nice life booked...No other health issues.
I am pleased I summarised!
Thank you for any thoughts, advice or personal experiences. Xxx
