I was all ready to wrap up my Avastin/olaparib treatment now that the two year mark is almost here. Everything I read everywhere says, Yep, two years of this maintenance after chemo and you're done. Now my onc today says "no need to cut it off if you don't want to, what do YOU want to do?" Eeek! How do I even know what I want to do?! He seems perfectly happy keeping me on this treatment which has thankfully worked so far, and doesn't foresee any toxicity problems (i.e., side effect of cancer treatment being a new, different cancer) and says why stop if it's working.
Huh! Not the conversation I was expecting. Has anyone other than our clinical trial warriors been treated w this combo for over the standard 2 years? I think this treatment is so new that there aren't even ppl who can say yes, am I right?
Only upside of stopping I can think of right now is i would love if my joints/muscles didn't constantly, always hurt. But do I want that bad enough to stop completely?
