Hi everyone, I joined a few months ago, my mum was diagnosed with stage IIIC OC in June, and has suffered with recurring ascites. She has tried one chemo but has now shown to be intrinsically platinum resistant, and I am wondering if anyone is able to confirm what I suspect? I suspect that as with previous chemo that didn't work, ascites is an indicator that this chemo also is not working. She had chemo (taxol) just two days ago and ascites is starting again. We saw her consultant on Monday who stated that the ascites just three weeks ago indicated that the cancer was progressing despite chemo. Do any of you have any insights? Thank you!
