My Mum was diagnosed with ovarian cancer on Christmas Eve 2013. She has had 7 chemos and an op during 2014. I took her for her first 3 month check on 7 Oct 2014 and she was told the cancer cell count was ' back to normal'. Then on 6 Jan she went with a friend for her second 3 month check and her CA 125 count had gone up to over 300. She was stunned, as were the whole family. She had a CT scan and a 19mm growth showed up near pancreas and a 'small amount' of cancer cells in lymph glands. Also a recurrence of ovarian cancer. On 13 Feb she is due to start chemo with Liposomal Doxorubicin every four weeks. Then, after 6 months she may be able to have the original chemo she had. I suppose I'm looking for positive stories and reassurance. Mum is an active and fit person and I'm hoping that the fact she's still active will help her to keep going. Jane
