After 14 of 18 weekly Taxol I was told today that my CA 125, which had recently dropped from 110 to 11, has now risen from 11 to 24 during the last 3 weeks. I don’t have to tell most of you ladies what that feels like. The oncologist says it looks like the Taxol has stopped working. He gave me a choice of stopping and having a rest or plodding on. I opted for plodding on. A CT scan will be arranged for me and the next plan of action will be discussed at the MDT meeting either this Monday or next. I’m more than worried as I’ve already had Carboplatin, Carb/Caelyx, Niraparib and Rucaparib. Taxol was my last hope but I pray there’ll be something else out there for me. The oncologist said there is always something else but he doesn’t want to kill me. I’m willing to try anything but not sure he will. Just how many chances do we get and how long can we hope to carry on with different treatments.
Feeling very down right now but tomorrow is another day.
Love to you all
