I had 4th chemo yesterday for metastatic OC and oncologist said I was responding very well to chemo (Taxol/Carboplatin) and my tumour markers are now within normal range (they had been 550 at diagnosis in early June this year) . The initial plan was 4 chemos, then debulking surgery 4 weeks later, and then the more chemo after surgery (3 or 4 sessions). I also had CT scan yesterday and the medical team will review the results next week. My oncologist said yesterday that he might continue with the chemo (another 4 sessions) and then have surgery later.
I am thrilled that the tumour in the ovary is responding so well, but wondering why chemo will continue now, instead of doing surgery as planned.
Any thoughts anyone??
