I've been looking around at research about remission before I see my Oncologist later in the month. I finished my first round of chemo about a month ago, and had debulking surgery in January.
I don't want to be laughed out of the room by quoting research that isn't generally accepted, so thought I'd run my question by you all first (figuring you won't laugh at me!)
Does anyone know anything about maintenance therapies? Are they offered to prolong remission? I've heard about Tamoxifen, but took that for 5 years after breast cancer and hated the side effects. I read that Fulvestrant is an alternative with less side effects. The other thing that seems to be quoted is PARP inhibitors, specifically Olaparib.
Is anything routinely offered, and does anyone have any experience of whether they work? Is there anything else? Should I be asking for anything at all, and if so, what? (Appreciating you don't have either my medical records or a crystal ball!)
Thanks so much for your help.
