I think I've been thinking too much today and just need to know if anyone else has had this please... My mum was initially told she would have 3 rounds of carboplatin, then surgery then more chemo. I saw the consultant with her after the first rounds of chemo and she basically said it hadn't cleared as much of the cancer as they wanted and they wanted to do 3 rounds of carbo/taxol before operating. She seemed very definate that they would operate straight after this. When mum went for her third lot the doctor she saw told her that even though she has an operation date booked, they would book her in for more chemo 'just in case'. Is this what other people have found? Maybe I'm analysing too much but I've now got it in my head that maybe her blood tests have shown something but they haven't told us yet? ie maybe her CA125 is rising again? Mum has got 2 scans booked this week so we'll find out next week whatever - just wondered if anyone else had experienced this? Thanks for reading!
