Hello ladies, I wish I had something positive to report, but no good news from me. I'm on my 5th line of chemo, with Topotecan, having passed through taxol+ carbo (twice), Caelyx, then more taxol-carbo (weekly), and this has been going on for almost 4 years. It's now clear that my tumour is platinum resistant, and that is why I moved to Topotecan. But last week's scan shows that it's not working, the existing tumours have grown, and more small ones around the abdomen have come up. It seems that there is nothing else left to try, so my oncologist has put me on Tamoxifen, in the hope of slowing things down. Has anybody had any experience of this?
Am 49 years old, and I've now realised that I probably only have a few months left to live. I am hoping to have at least another summer, but this might be wishful thinking.
Thank you for your help and support.
