I'm new to this site but hope someone can help me .my mum is 66 ,ovarian cancer ,diagnosed march 12 .biopsy showed serous adenocarcinoma .had 6 mths of carboplatin .went into remission for 6 mths .then at end of June 13 had to start 18 weeks of taxol .managed to complete 12 weeks of taxol .she got 8 full doses ,4 reduced doses as taxol treatment was becoming very difficult for her .then ca125 started to rise slowly.2 weeks ago it was 82 .last Monday we got the news we all don't want to hear .mum asked how long have I got ,the answer was months !!! Chemo was stopped .mum was sent home on femara 2.5 mg ( used in breast cancer but good got ovarian ) .to come back in 6-8 weeks and maybe they will do carboplatin chemo then .meant to say surgery has never been an option as she is stage 3c from offset .
Now the question is do we accept this or what ?? Has anyone been down this road? Am I missing anything ? What should I be doing apart from obvious ? Should we go for a 2nd opinion ? And where ? I don't want any regrets .i have no one to talk this over with.i want my mum for as long as I can but somehow I feel the dr is given up on her. Please please point me in the right direction.i need to be proactive.ive requested her 2 most recent ct scans ,still haven't received them .many thanks for reading this and if you have anything please get In
