I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in June 2011. To date I have had 5 courses of chemotherapy to control the disease. There seems to be no effective treatment for my condition, and in the last 18 months I have been more often on chemotherapy than off it. Having recently had a shoulder operation, I need a good 3 or 4 months off chemotherapy to enable my shoulder to heal. So I am considering having a course of intravenous vitamin C treatment in the hope of delaying the next relapse of symptoms and need for more chemotherapy. In the absence of so called 'gold standard' clinical trial evidence showing the effectiveness of this expensive alternative treatment, I would very much like to hear from anyone who has tried this treatment, or knows someone who has. What was your/their experience of the treatment, and did you/they get any benefits from it?
