Hi, I was diagnosed September last year with Stage3/4 Ovca with a malignant pleural effusion. Following 3 months of carboplatin/taxol I was declared in remission in April this year. 2 weeks ago however I was rushed back in with a large pleural effusion and tests confirmed that the ovarian cancer is back in the pleura. Quite common im told with ovca. I start tomorrow on Carboplatin and Caeylx. My Oncologist is very reassuring that he will get me into remission again, but is there anybody out there who has experienced the same so early in remission and gone on to complete 2nd line chemo and then been ok. My CA125 remains quite low , just 100 and ct scans show no disease in the abdominal cavity. Love to hear from anyone.
