Hello! I'm just starting secondline treatment consisting of Avastin/Doxil for 6 rounds. I will have Avastin/Doxil on day 1 and Avastin on day 15 for 6 months. I'm curious at what point the PPE might rear it's head. Do you only need to be super cautious for the first 5 days after treatment and then go back to 'normal'. ...... Meaning hot showers, hot coffee, exercise, etc..
I'm also wondering who might have already completed a regimine like this and what success they had.
I was diagnosed in June 2016 with Stage IIIc clear cell. I had a complete hysterectomy followed 4 weeks later by chemotherapy with Carbo/Taxol for 6 rounds. I completed my last treatment on November 1, 2016. During that time I struggled with ascities, having 3 paracentesis between treatments 2-4. My CA125 was always up and down. After my last treatmen I was an 86.
My Oncologist did a pelvic exam (which was normal) and ordered a CT Scan. The CT showed mild to moderate ascities still present. That combined with my CA125 not normalizing is when he decided to begin Secondline treatment. I had my first round on December 13, 2016.
