Mum had her second check-up today (following first line treatment which finished in March '12) and her oncologist confirmed that the cancer is back. We were partly expecting this as Mum had a pleurodesis procedure in early July following a collapsed lung caused by fluid build up in her chest. Her recent CA125 has passed 600 however it only got down to 200 after first line chemo. Mum's oncologist is keen to get a CT scan before commencing any second line treatment which is good because on the whole Mum is feeling okay despite some twinges most likely caused by the operation.
Most likely drug is Topotecan which I am now researching. Has anyone had success with this treatment? If this doesn't work then Taxol on its own is the next likely option.
Any comments welcome as I seek to understand more about this part of Mum's treatment.
