Stage 4 OC and nodules all over the abdominal & in the last 12 months, I have tried three different of Chemo (almost believ I am a chemo refractory) & the worst from the side effects is the last chemo (Etoposide-daily tablet). A lot of abdominal pain plus vomiting/nausea as well as diarrhea/constipation and bloating have been experienced. There was not good response …however no major progression and no remission at all. No hope for any surgery the only potential advantage of the chemo is to control the disease. To improve my life quality, I decided to take break from the chemo for at least three months and I already noticed the improvement (pain free so far), but I am not sure if I have taken the right decision or not. The plan is to have a CT after three months then revisit my current plan. Your feedback please, in my decision “to stop the chemo for the time being”?
