I have been to see my onc today and am being booked in for a scan next week. the good news is the I have no acestites that needs draining and the little amount of fluid should go by the time treatment starts. My onc has given me three possible chemo regimes. caelyx if he can source it for me ( it was unavailable last Dec when I had my 2nd line chemo) topotecan, or the option of a daily tablet. can you ladies give me a first hand experience of how these chemos are and how often you have to have it( i have heard that topotecan is taken over a week at 2 hours a day every three weeks). my last chemo was plaxitel and gemcetobine and it hammered my white cells and left me very poorly and my onc is worried that the topotecan will do the same.
I am naturally very worried about how I will deal with it all but I know that I can be prepared for it if I know what to expect.
thanking you all in advance for any advice given lots of love xxxxParvin
