I had my last second line chemo middle of February and when I saw my oncologist last week she's booked me in for a scan and says I'll need to start chemo again which is a bit of a bummer as I was hoping for a bit longer!! l'I've got fluid but it is continually changing, sometimes my stomach is really distended and hard and at other times it's not quite so bad. I feel I need to keep trying to take deep breaths and when I do I have real discomfort particularly on the left hand side. I was wondering at what stage can the fluid be drained off - do you have to wait until the stomach is really distended all the time?
I'll be on Topotecan this time - any info on the side effects of this would be appreciated. I was told only one in ten loses their hair - is this right?
Thanks. Cathy xx
