It is 5 years since I was diagnosed with late stage OC. Went through 2 surgeries, 6 lines of chemo, and remissions are becoming shorter and shorter. I understand that it is incurable, but still have things to do and so I continue fighting, but somewhat reluctantly. Most recently my gynae-oncologist suggested one more line, starting with carbo-platins. On the second treatment I turned allergic - too much too often. So I was shifted to Cisplatins. Horrible result, sickest I've ever felt, with all the possible side effects and then some. Now he suggests weekly Taxol (3 weeks on, two off) for 6 rounds. I've had Taxol before and know its side effects well. Is there any experience out there willing to speculate on how long this is likely to be effective?
