I had a relapse early December and had the fluid drained in early January. It was then proposed that I have three 3rd-line treatments of carbo and caelyx followed by being put in an Ariel 3 trial at the RM. I think I was fairly fed up with the possibility of, going through it all over again! and decided to see if I could beat the ascities build up. I don't know how it has happened but I have been eating a bit differently, having a small meal about lunchtime, a good filling meal about 7pm and then nothing until midday the next day. I have pretty well stuck to it, weight has come off my hips and the tummy area just gets softer and softer. Have I found a 'cure'?? I know the CT scans show the build up of the fluid but how do you tell if the cancer is still growing?? My consultant is pretty impressed but doesn't comment further!! Any refections fromout there!!
