I finished 7 sessions of Taxol/Carboplatin(with Avastin added on last 3) on December 3d and have had two infusions of Avastin only since. I've had some discomfort/pain and bloating in my abdomen and had a scan last Thursday. I'm due to see the onc. on 10th March, but decided to call the hospital for earlier results. A registrar ( I think) called me yesterday , asked me how I was feeling and had I been experiencing any bloating. He said the scan was "stable" and the CA125 levels were within normal range, but that there is some fluid evident. I asked was this something to worry about, and he said that it's an indication that something is not right (or words to that effect, I can't recall the exact words he used) and my oncologist will discuss it with me.
Although I'm trying to look at the positives - normal CA125, stable scan- I am getting quite uptight and worried. I was diagnosed last June with Stage 4 , with spread to spleen and liver, grade 3 serous OC and had debulking surgery . When they operated there was no evidence of cancer in spleen and liver. It seems the chemo took care of those!
Any comments/advice from the warriors on this site would be much appreciated!
regards to all
