Sending hugs Shortie38....not the news anyone wants but sounds like your GP is very proactive ...do you know what chemo you will have? My Onc told me that if/when I recur they will use Caelyx. Lxx

Wishing you a mountain of luck and hoping they come up with an effective treatment for you!


Me too Shortie38, I've joined the club too recently, didn't want to but here I am.

I've had 9 weeks of Letrozole but had to stop last week because of horrid side effects, had a CT scan this morning and I think I'll be on chemo pretty soon as having abdo discomfort.

I'm glad your Gp was on the ball and sent you for scan,

Keep strong

Sorry you’re back in the club. It sounds as if your GP is on top of things. When do you see your onc again?

All the best!


Hi nòt sure waiting for a apointment to come throùgh my dr has wrote to my onc about me .thank you. Shortie38x


Seems that recurrence is a way of life with OC related carcinoma, whether or not one is BRCA and has to be prepared for it at the very beginning. Unfortunately as of now, it's not possible to be war ready to fight it, instead one has to be ready to join it, until a reason for it's cause is discovered. Not trying to seem.pessimistic but wanting to find optimism within the realms of OC. Keep the Faith that The Day will come when we have found out the How and Why.



They try not to treat a recurrence until the symptoms start to bother you, so I don't believe it's age related just general practice. I am planning on watch and wait although have a feeling they are going to say the chemo word and I'm not up for more at the moment.

Hi Shortie

I'm in a similar place. I've just been told my OC has recurred. Just started Tamoxifen, not too bed so far but I don't know if it's working.

Like Lily-Anne, I'm not up for more chemo yet.

Hope you get a treatment plan soon.




Thank you hope it goes well for you.take care.shortie38.x
