Good evening ladies,
Im currently on Caylex and Taxol. I have had my 4th cycle and midway scan was positive showing some reduction and my CA125 has come down to 55 from 2100. So its all positive and going in the right direction.
During my initial appointment when we discussed the side effects of the drug I was told that Caylex is a slow burner and that we may not see any reaction until the final scan after the full 6 rounds. When I discussed it this time round she said that its not likely to get rid of it all and the next step would be just to watch and wait until it becomes active again to restart chemo.
What I don't understand is why when she said we were not likely to see much results until after 4th cycle then why does she say that it probably wont reduce much more then it has?
Has anyone else experienced this? Have you had a sudden had a reaction after the 4th cycle?
as a side note by right side, the side it is currently occupying is very achy today
