Hello everyone. I'm new to to this place. I was diagnosed with a very rare (so I was told) germ cell, yolk sac tumour in my left ovary at the end of 2006. My tumour measured 20 cms in diameter and I eventually had 11 litres of ascites fluid drained from my stomach. So much to tell but in brief, I got the rare side effect of lung fibrosis from the Blomycin, was put on a strong dose of steroids orally and intravenously for over 1 year - that caused so many awful side effects on top of those I'd experienced from chemo. I was operated on via epidural 2 years after initial chemo treatment, as my lungs couldnt take a general anaesthetic (still cant). Its been a really long, long Road and I've been through so so much but am glad I'm still here! Anyway, I wondered if there was anyone else who had received the above 3 chemo drugs? I know that the chemo course I was on was the toughest and hardest one to do ( again, what docs told me, but I knew no different at the time) and so anyone who's had any experience with these drugs would be great to share experiences with. Even better, anyone with lung fibrosis from bleomycin.
