Not giving up!

Lockygill profile image

8 years from 3c diagnosis and 2 operations and lots of chemo treatments later, I’m now on daily cyclophosphamide. Good news at hospital today. Markers have gone down again and the liver lesion appears to have disappeared altogether. They are going to look into that to see if they have read the scan wrong. All bloods good so another month of chemo. I’m enjoying a full life and am happy to be stable at the moment. Feeling like celebrating today. Never give up people x

Really happy for you. I got the same feeling when my CT scan after 3 chemo rounds were so positive. My oncologist said “ we rarely see such a good response” even though I know I’m only at the beginning

Your post is just what I need today. I’m feeling so tired, listless and very odd that I’m sure it’s on its way back. I’m dreading being told I have to go on to a daily regime but you’re coping with it and still being very positive so I will be too. 🤗

That's fantastic news! I was diagnosed July 2020 with 3C OC you give me hope,thank you xx

Hi Lockygill, thanku for sharing ur great news 😊 really need it today as had my first recurrence last year after original diagnosis 3c in 2016. Had surgery again and was told it was all successfully removed. Then 6 rnds of chemo but half way thru chemo last year my 125 was creeping up but consultant wasn't worried. Finished chemo and had scan in December which showed lesions on my liver and something near my stomach, but still she wasn't worried (I sure as hell was tho so asked to switch consultants) had another scan last month and got told today that actually it looks like the chemo may not have worked, surgeons probably didn't get it all out and despite being on Rucaparib since January I've got 2 tumours which have grown since December. He's arranging an urgent pet scan but thinks more chemo won't be an option but radiotherapy may be. Got to wait for pet scan and results. Sorry for rambling, and I hope I haven't dragged u down, it's just I'm in bits and feel like this is the beginning of the end, but reading ur post reminds me that there my still be hope. Best wishes x

Believe me, I’ve been there, but I’ve just taken everything they have suggested on board and tried to keep my mind on the positives. I was referred to the Hospice last year but I’ve bounced back once again and am enjoying the life I have. Stay strong, stay positive and optimistic. Good luck x

Hi LockygillI’ve been looking at this forum for the last 4 years and never posted anything , but when I read your post it certainly gave me hope!

I’m similar to you in that I was diagnosed as 3c 5 years ago and had an op and 2 sets of chemo .

They’ve found a lesion on my liver , but strangely the ca125 hadn’t altered at all. Still very normal .

The team are trying to decide whether to operate on the lesion or not but your post made me feel a lot more hopeful than I have been previously feeling .

Thank you for keeping the hope alive ! Like you I have a full and happy life and Iam prepared to keep on fighting for it !
