After various tests, raised CA125, ultrasound, MRI, CT, colposcopy, Biopsy under CT my Mum age 70 has been told she has Grade 3 OC. She has been advised that she will start chemo Carboplatin next week. 3 courses of treatment, then CT scan, surgery then another 3 courses of chemo. I have read a lot on the internet and I am concerned that most people have surgery 1st then chemo. The doctor said they wanted to shrink the tumors 1st. Has anyone else had this, 3 courses, surgery and then 3 more courses of chemo? Any information would be greatly appreciated. The Oncology doctor seemed a bit reluctant to answer to many questions, so I am worried she has not told us everything. Mum has seen a gynacologist but that was for the initial consultation and he has now passed her over to Oncology.
