I was diagnosed at stage 3C in August and put on a 3 cycles of chemo debulk then another 3 cycles of chemo treatment plan. It all seemed to be going to plan, the CT scan showed shrinkage, my CA125 was down from 980 to 35 and all the fluid has gone! So I was booked in for my operation on the 30th of October. I went to the hospital was preped for the op but I woke up to find that the surgeon had decided not to go ahead as I had deposits of the cancer on my small bowel 😕 I can't even begin to explain how distraught I have been.
They have sent me back for another 3 rounds of chemo and will reassess after that.
Has this happened to anyone else?
Do you think I should discuss changing my chemo with my oncologist whom I'm seeing on the 18th? For something stronger. I'm currently on the taxel/carbon regime.
Any advice or information would be greatly appreciated.
