I'm a newbie on here, on behalf of my mother. I'm seeking your thoughts and prior experience about Avastin. My mom has stage 3 high grade serous oc. She has had 3 chemo sessions with Avastin, then surgery which went quite well and now to finish 3 more chemo with Avastin sessions. I asked if she should continue the Avastin afterwards and he seemed unsure.
His thoughts were that she could do a few more Avastin rounds afterwards but maybe not all year (she will have to pay for it herself) He said maybe it could be saved for use in case of reocurrance.
So, I'm wondering if some of you have been prescribed Avastin and for how long? Did it seem much more worth it to stay on it longer term? I'm a bit confused by all the variability in treatment options, though I know there are differences in the types of ovarian cancer.
Thanks for any input!
