Had four treatments of carbo/taxol for primary peritoneal cancer. Op on 24 October to debulk. Removal of omentum and ovaries. CT scan hadn't shown full extent of cancer so removal of more not possible. Had carbo on its own last week, now have to decide whether to have carbo/gemcitabine to finish chemo sessions for this first line, then check later, or finish carbo and start on Avastin if possible. This would go on for months and has possible frightening side effects (but don't they all). Either way a CT scan will be scheduled for end of Jan 2012. Have read what I can and am leaning towards Avastin, but does anyone have any input?
Bit difficult trying to write this as Mrs Brown (our cat) insists on leaning on mouse!
