Just wonder if you can help.
One of the ladies I had chemo with back in 2012 has been told that her cancer has possibly returned and they may stop treatment...I stopped going to see our oncologist, as I felt he never really gave me any hope...and here he is at it again...but...I want to be able to guide her in a positive direction.
If I gave a brief synopsis of her 'cancer life', maybe someone may have been along a similar path and help us.
(2010 Breast Ca treated with FEC then radio) apart from being later diagnosed as BRCA +ve, this is unrelated to the OVCA
Late 2011 OVCA treated with C and P hyst and debaulking
Sept 2012 Ca returned. Initial poor response by oncologist, but pushed for trial and was referred and spent 14 months on parp inhibitor trial - rucaparib- before that stopped working.
She had 6 months watch and wait before starting caelyx and carbo....
The thing is her ca125 has always reflected what is going on with the disease...highs of 34000 and a low of 19. Currently whilst her ca125 is improving on the C and C, the consultant says her last CT before New Year shows new disease activity ...and wants to stop chemo.
She was too shocked to ask any questions...but he wasn't suggesting anything else.
Out of all the new drugs and trials out there, can anyone think of one she may be suitable for as next line of treatment.
Thank you for reading this, even if you can't help
