Hi there, I have been a member of this site for over a year but have never posted before. My mum was diagnosed stage 3c January 2014 and had carboplatin/taxol, TAH June 2014 followed by 3 more courses of carbo/taxol. Chemo completed in August 2014 with positive results. Scan in Jan 2015 showed no visible trace of cancer apart from an enlarged lymph node. We took this as a huge positive but had a phone call 1 week later to say that CA125 had risen to 200. My mum was very weak last year and lost a lot of weight following draining if fluid on her lungs and hospitalisation due to severe gastritis. However, since completing chemo she had gained weight and is feeling incredibly well. She is my world and I am very concerned at a recurrence just 6-8 months after completing first line chemo. We have a scan booked in and an appt with oncologist on 14th April. Need some positive stories please about recurrence and long remission periods following 2nd line treatment. We are based in S Wales and therefore don't think avastin will be an option. Many thanks in advance ladies xxx
