Diagnosed with ovarian cancer stage 3c in June 2012, it had spread to the uterus, tubes and bowel. Full hysterectomy, one third of large intestine removed plus 20 cm of small intestine. Had a bag (ileostomy) which was reversed after eight months. Eight rounds of carboplatin and taxol. Last June the cancer recurred and I've been on carboplatin and caelyx every twenty eight days for six months.
Now I am on a maintenance dose of caelyx only every 28 days but the last couple of months I've been getting severe headaches eith sinus pain and my teeth have been aching. Tha caelyx had got rid of some of the small cancers and others had reduced.
