Hi everyone - my mum has already had 2 courses of chemo following her diagnoses and op nearly 4 years ago now - she has stage 3c ovarian cancer. She only finished her last chemo in May this year and has been on Avastin since then - she was very disappointed when told last week that her CA125 has begun to rise again! I am just trying to support her as best I can but I know she is worrying about what's next and I know she is not strong enough to face chemo again and im not sure even if it would be offered to her - she is 77 and already had carboplatin/taxol and this last time she had Gem/Carbo . any suggestions please - the cancer is in her bowel/intestines now and she has been on a low fibre diet since last December.
