Mum is on her 3rd line treatment at the moment and we are not 100% sure if she is still responding as her levels have increased slightly each week.
Mum has had Carboplatin / Taxol for first line - this seemed to work well the first time and she ended up NED.
After a 6 month relapse they put her on Carboplatin / Caelyx for 2nd line - she didnt respond to this at all so was stopped
She is now on weekly taxol and there were improvements to her CA125 initially but now it is creeping again. It has gone from 178 down to 77 then to 66 then to 161 now it is 186. Mum feels well in herself but not sure if it is starting to not respond. They have said worst case they will stop it and look at other options but they are limited.
Please can you let me know if any of you have had simiular experience with response of these treatments and if there are any others you've been given outside of this that have worked for you? I want to have lots up my sleeve I can ask the Onc about.
Our Onc and CNS tend to be pretty negative, however others can be so positive and reading on here I hear lots of great stories.
Please let me know any good treatment options that you've found useful so I can start researching or inquiring about them.
Two of my friends mums are on tablet form of chemotherapy, not sure what these are or how effective.
