First post for a while - I stepped back for a while to concentrate on family, friends and me! I managed skiing, riding, dancing, modelling in the Touch of Teal fashion show, did lots of walking and had a holiday on the Camargue.
It’s not quite six months since I finished Caelyx/Carboplatin and my CA125 has increased 5-fold in 8 weeks - it’s now over 700. I started having strange abdominal discomforts about three weeks ago just as I was getting ready to go to France - some urgency and pain, wind and constipation and bloating. I went to France, but decided to contact my CNS to do bloods my early as I knew there was something not right. Anyway, I’m looking at 18 weekly doses of Taxol to enjoy over the summer and probably no hair again (which I don’t really mind).
My team are getting CT and ultrasound to see if I have ascites - my consultant thinks not - but I’m happy that they’re getting chemo on board quickly.
I’m wondering if anyone has any words of wisdom with reference to this regime - I had Taxol with Carboplatin for first line chemo - had a bit of an allergic reaction to it but was rechallenged and finished the course with the help of steroids.
Best wishes to all here, I hope everyone is as well as they can be.
