Hello all - I am 5 treatments through a planned 18 of maintenance Avastin. I am on it because a raised CA125 after optimal debulking led to a CT scan, which showed no further cancer but rather ascites in the abdominal cavity. I am sure my consultant said I would have a scan after 3 months, and I am eager to have it to find out if the ascites has cleared. I am not enjoying the Avastin and would love to come off it through mutual agreement. However, the registrars, etc. I have seen recently are insistent that a scan would only be done if my CA125 caused concern, and it has, in fact, come down to 7. Before I have a hissy fit and ask to see the consultant to sort this, can any other UK Avastin " users" please tell me what their experiences of scans are? Many thanks.
