Anyone have any experiences of tamoxifen?
My mum had her first regular check up today after finishing chemotherapy (carbo/taxol) in October for stage 4 oc. Our worst fears have been realised and her ca125 is up from 17 at the end of November to 289. This is a massive jump, especially considering it was only 437 when she was diagnosed.
Her oncologist has put her on tamoxifen in the hope that it might slow or stop the rise in her ca125. Does anyone have any experience of this drug? Good or bad?
Also does ca125 tend to rise more quickly with a recurrence? I'm concerned that it's nearly up to her pre chemo/surgery levels already And hoping that maybe the ca125 markers tend to be higher with a recurrence -anyone had this?
Thank you x
