Hi I am afraid I don’t have practical advice but want to give you support after a frightening conversation with your surgeon. I know from this site there are many drugs left to try. I don’t know where you are located but have you sought a second opinion from a top consultant and looked into clinical trials? I wish you the best!xoxo

Hi there. Have you considered getting a second opinion first from one of the big cancer centers in the UK, from a radical gyn surgeon (there is one in London.. maybe she would operate?), and/or from a low grade OC expert like MD Anderson in Dallas, Texas?

Hopefully there are more treatment option out there for you, even without having to fall back on alternative medicine. Avastin, other chemo drugs (can always try, even if low grade is often said to be somewhat chemo resistant) etc?

I share your fears of running out of treatment options for LGSC... but hopefully that is not the case at this point. All the best. Maus
