Hi everyone. I hope someone can give me some advice.I have had first line chemo (taxol and carboplatin) and I have had 11 of my 18 avastin infusions and am delighted that my Ca125 has dropped to 23 from over 11 000 at the start. Unfortunately the more avastin treatments I have, the worse the side effects become. My neck is sore, my feet hurt when I stand up, I am absolutely exhausted all the time, I have headaches, mouth ulcers and joint pain in my right thumb and hand. This is making it more difficult for me to open tins, peel veg, write and even to drive.
I am on the Icon 8b trial and am really grateful that I have been able to have Avastin and I know that it has been helpful in reducing my Ca125 but I don't know if I can keep going with it for another 21 weeks. I feel in such a dilemma. Can anyone offer any advice? Thank you
