To all the ladies on Zejula. Just talked to my doctor at Mayo Clinic and she said a new report just came out on Zejula they are calling it the miracle drug for Ovarian Cancer. Getting great results with it.

Hi, I have been on Zejula for over a year and a half. I have been doing great on it. Keeping CA125 down, 7 right now no further evidence of cancer as of Oct.

Many new drugs coming out too. Best of everything to all.

My doctor at Mayo put me on Lymparza. Is there much difference? I am BRCA1 +.

Is Zejula ever used with frontline or as maintenance? Or is it used only in the case of recurrence?

my Mayo doc prescribed it after my reacurrance when I was done with chemo for the second time. I feel good on 200 mg could not take 300 because of shortness of breath, and anemia.

Was in remission 18 months the first time now in remission for 17 months and I think Zejula will help keep cancer away.
