Hi ladies. Not posted for a while as I was, I thought, doing okay, but have been reading everyone else's news and replying where I can.
Diagnosed 3c ovarian cancer back in July 2012, had debulking November 2012, ended up with permenant colostomy
Started 2nd line gemcitabine/carboplatin plus the wonder drug Avastin, back in November 2013, after progression in the lymph nodes. I have been doing quite well, even had a holiday in Crete.
Routine CT shows new growth in the liver and spleen and the oncologist has now stopped the Avastin, just like that!!! She said it's obviously not working. I told her I was doing ok, that I was worried the others may grow in the lymph if it was stopped, but she wont give it to me anymore. As I am a-symptomatic she's going to let my body have a rest from drugs etc.
I have another appointment in 2 weeks time, but she suggested Caelyx and carboplatin as a possible treatment. Maybe there will be a trial in the way I can look at.
I left feeling devastated and downhearted and just need a bit of moral support. Was feeling so positive and this has hit me harder than I anticipated.
Love and good wishes to all you wonderful ladies, Irene xxxx
