My mum was diagnosed with advanced ovarian cancer in November. It seemed to take so long to get the diagnosis despite being told about it at A and E. Mum has epithelial serous cancer and started treatment in January. It was on her 75th birthday!
We managed to get her on the ICON8B trial where she has carbo every three weeks and taxol at a reduced dose each week. It is such a relief to get treatment and I am so pleased she has responded so well to the chemotherapy.
As yet, mum has only had some pins and needles in her feet and thining of her hair. The second cycle started yesterday and I'm remaining positive that the ascites stays away and she feels as well as she does
I have been reading all your posts and have been reassured by all your comments. It has been a tough few months!
