Here is my story: First line treatment, I did amazing (or so I thought). My scans were clean and I lived a short remission. I recurred and was put on monthly doses of Avastin and Doxil. The Avastin has given me a terrible time. I had to stop after three full doses. I now have high blood pressure and kidney damage from the Avastin. My kidney levels keep rising although I have been off the Avastin for two months. The Avastin also created issues with my hemoglobins and red platelets. It has been a nightmare to say the least. I have received 5 doses of Doxil but will be switching to a new regiment as my CT revealed the two existing lesions have slightly grown. No other new growths noted!!!
I will now be on a dose reduction and a kidney friendly type chemo. I am looking for any advice on kidney friendly chemo drugs and a boost of confidence as I feel like no matter how hard I try these past 5 months I keep getting kicked!!!!
How many lines of treatment have we all been on???? Anybody with kidney issues???
I am thankful for any info you can provide.
