I was diagnosed with stage 4 uterine cancer in Jan of 2016. I had a hysterectomy, then chemo, then remission for a year, then it came back. Then we tried Doxil, which stopped working, so on to Carbo Gemzar... Basically the CA 125 showed my levels going down after 1 or 2 injections, but then started going up again with both of these chemos.
My doctor says sometimes the tumor gets it's own blood supply? He is going to try Avastin with the Carbo Gemzar which he says will most likely work. This has me scared. I don't know what this means. Has anyone else had this problem? I am also nervous about Avastin. I know a lot of people here take it with Carbo Gemzar and I would appreciate any feedback. I hesitate to read the side effects. Last time I did that I wound up getting very worried about things that didn't even happen to me. Thanks so much for reading and responding if you can.
