I keep an eye on this site on behalf of a very dear friend, diagnosed stage 3c last August. She and I find your questions and answers a constant source of support; I hope nobody minds me asking something on her behalf. She is about to get her latest CA125 result, post radical hysterectomy and 6 months post chemo. Her oncologist (at the Marsden) has indicated that if it is raised so soon after treatment this is a sign the treatment hasn't worked at all and there may be no point in continuing with chemo. On the other hand, if her result is still low 6 months post chemo, it may be she is one of the lucky ones whose disease is not chemo resistant. Her family is keen for her to have more chemo if her CA125 is raised but she feels she can't face it. Can anyone else tell us what they have done at this point? She's been treated with caelyx because she was allergic to Taxol. I'm also interested to know if anyone has been prescribed Avastin either as part of a trial or regular treatment because we understood from the info at the Ovacome conference in June that it was only available in the States. Thank you.
