I have been on watch and wait since August last year with CA125 swinging up and down. Now I have symptoms and blood tumour marker is over 500. I also have fluid in pelvis and around my liver. The hospital are offering to start chemo next week. Carbo/taxol as first time around. I would like to get some more advice but it all takes time and I am anxious for the chemo to go ahead asap. Does a week or so make much difference. Also will the fluid go away if the chemo is successful ? I had also asked to be referred to the RM but the hospital dragged their feet and although the request was made 3 weeks ago the referral has only just been made. The criteria for the trial is that you haven't had chemo in the last 4 weeks so to go ahead next week would make me ineligible. I have so many questions and no one to ask. Can anyone help ?
