Hi everyone. I saw my onc before chemo number 3 on Friday. I thought this was just a routine appointment, but he told me that my last scan (13 June) showed that there was further areas of growth in my abdomen, also CA125 has not been affected by the hysterectomy (27 April)
He is going to introduce Avastin in my next treatment to be given along side the Carbo/Taxol. I am having the Avastin for 16 sessions at 3 weekly intervals, so having been telling myself that I am almost half way through the treatment, I am now facing well into next year.
Is it usual to have this cocktail?
I live alone, and just wanted to share all this with someone. Obviously I am really disappointed that the Carbo/Taxol is not having the desired result and think I will probably have a bit of a cry later this evening. Sorry to be such a wet blanket.
