Hi all, after undergoing chemo and radical surgery for ovarian cancer May 2014 to November 2014, I thought that was the end of it, how wrong was I, Christmas of 2015 saw my CA125 levels start to rise again and that was followed by scans and more blood tests till secondary ovarian was diagnosed. In April of this year I was started of on chemo Carboplatin, Avast and Gemcitabina, all has been going well until my 4th session when I had a bad reaction to carbo. my blood pressure dropped dramaticaly and all chemo had to stop. I have just had my 5th session with the same drugs, but the carbo was to be administered over 2 hours instead of one to see If I could tolarate it, but just 10 minutes in and my blood pressure dropped again and I was quite ill, once again the chemo had to be stopped. so my question is, will there be a suitable chemo for me if I can,t have carbo. (I did keep my hair this time, lost it all first time round) Thanks.
