It was suggested by my oncologist that given the advanced nature of my condition that there might be some advantge in combining Avastin to my chemo regime. However the funding request has so far been refused by the Cancer Drugs Fund on the basis that I do not meet the criteria as I am not suitable for debulking surgery and trials of Avastin explored the impact on individuals who had had surgery first. Is it worth me considering self funding this treatment? How would that work?
