I was diagnosed with stage 4 with lung spread following an episode of pleural effusion 4 years and a Ca125 of over 6000. To cut a long story short I was given a terminal diagnosis with palliative care only. Lucky for me I saw a wonderful oncologist who commenced taxol and carboplatin chemo. I responded and had surgery half way through(once said to be a waste of time). To date my CA125 has remainded stable at normal levels. I just wanted to share this with anyone else who may be facing this and to say hang in there, there is hope. I am nothing special, not brave or religious but I give thanks to God to be so lucky.
