Stable results after second line chemo

Hello everyone

I've just had my 3 monthly checkup after finishing second line chemo in September 2017. CA125 remains at 9 and no significant change on the CT scan - some additional "thickening" in my trouble spots but no cause for immediate concern according to the oncologist. So hubby and I are really pleased to be in a stable place and are planning to enjoy life as much as possible for the next few months, I'm even going to tackle the big flight to the UK for Dad's 80th birthday!

With very best wishes to all, especially those who are struggling at the moment, Dawn xx

Hi Liz

They don't seem to do surgery here in Australia for recurrences - I kept asking if it was possible but the medical team said no. I think on the basis that I had 3 visible tumours on the CT scan but probably lots of "invisible" masses as well, so surgery couldn't possibly hope to get it all. Still I did have very positive results from the second line carbo treatment. Glad to hear you had such a positive outcome. We all need to enjoy everyday!

Best wishes Dawn xx

That's great news, and I hope it continues for a long time after. I'm surprised to read that you were just getting Carboplatin monotherapy. That's rather uncommon for a reccurence. Any specific reason why they didn't couple it with something else like Taxol, Caelyx, Gemzar, etc..?
