Brief history. Wife diagnosed (stage 3c high grade serous OC) in Oct 10. Dec 10 hyster etc. Jan- May 11 Carbo/taxol. Nov-Dec 4 x weekly Taxol. Jan 12 - Jun 12 gem/carbo. In Jun 12 CA125 = 106 the lowest it had ever been.
Pains started again in Aug 12 & CA125 = 236.
Started caelyx late Nov and have had 3 sessions. CA125 has gone 2318, 2576 & now 3168.
Last figure is before 3rd Caelxy last week.
I know that CA125 isnt the be all and end all, but for us its always been a v good guide to what going on. My wife feels fine, well tired but fine. Nor does she know her CA125 levels, we had decided back in Aug not to ask for them, but i still got them and kept them from her cos not worth her worrying as well as me, she has enough to put up with anyway.
Have scan 1st week Feb and results 2nd week Feb. Obviously i am expecting bad news and of course my wife will then be party to it.
SO.....after all that my questions are:
1: Has anyone had Caelyx and found the CA125 levels took awhile to drop. Reason for this is Onc obviously knew levels were rising so wonder why they continued and gave 3rd one.
2: Anyone had carbo with caelyx?....heard thats had some results.
3: If my wife goes onto another chemo this will be her 5th line so we are kinda running out of chemos to try and will probably end up on a trial.......anyone on a trial that has given cause for optimism.
Really i am just trying to formulate some questions for Onc once we see them after scan.
Thanks and good luck to one and all.
