Had the results of CT scan after three cycles of Carboplatin/Gemcitabine. Unfortunately the chemo is not working as well as expected. Although my CA125 has gone down the tumours haven't shrunk. The good news is they haven't grown either so the chemo has kept them stable (they were growing quickly prior to starting chemo).
Unfortunately this means I am now classed as platinum-resistant. Fortunately the Royal Marsden have come up with other options, including weekly paclitaxol and other trials.
I have opted for another trial. It is 6MP (Phase II Clinical trial in patients with known BRCA Defective Tumours). Has anyone else tried this trial? The drug is taken in tablet form daily. It has been used for leukemia and rheumatoid arthritis and is now being tested on BRCA defective cancers. I have an appointment at RM on Monday and all being well I will start the new drug then.
best wishes to all
