This is my first post. I joined the group on the advice of my friend - she has been a member for a while. I have just started my 2nd line chemo after my ovarian cancer reoccurred. I was first diagnosed in December 2015 and my ca125 started creeping up again September 2017. I’ve started chemo again and wanted to share my cautiously optimistic news that my ca125 has gone down. I didn’t realise until today how worried I was. I am BRCA2 positive and like many of us, in what feels like a war of attrition with my cancer.
The stories from this group have given me lots of strength over the past 3 weeks in what has been a tricky start to my chemo with uncooperative veins and urine infections! I am now fully armed with antibiotics and a PICC line (the best thing I’ve ever agreed to) so I feel more optimistic than I’ve done for weeks.
Thank you for all the advice offered and lots of love to you all.
