Hello all.....Let me start by saying how lovely all you ladies are, and how comforting it is to have you all here.
I was wondering if anyone out there has had mets to the liver? I have enjoyed a wonderful 27 month remission, and I thank God for it every day. I know that's more than I could have hoped for after having been diagnosed with stage 4 OC.
My ca125 started to bounce around between 21 and 90. My doctors had no explanation. The last one was 84, so I had a ct scan, and that showed mets to my liver. I realize the ca125 numbers seem so low in comparison to others I've seen, but my doctor said that my 539 (my number on diagnosis) was like someone else having a number in the thousands. I guess it's just the difference between all our bodies.
I am waiting now to hear if I am eligible for a trial......I am in the US. I would get the carboplatin alone, or in addition to that I would receive one or two pills. I've heard they are having good results with this. Even if I don't get into the trial, I will still have the carboplatin. It, along with the taxol, seems to have beaten the beast back for a good while!
Just wondering if anyone has had the monster take up residence in their liver, and what was done.
You are all in my thoughts and prayers every day. Thank you for your support....JudyV
