Starting Avastin infusion : Hi ladies... - SHARE Ovarian Can...
Hi Emma, I was on Avastin for over a year. The only side effect I had was it created high blood pressure for me. I had to go back on chemo for awhile but now I am on Zejula for almost 2 years. I have been on this journey for 6 years now. We all are here for you. This site has helped alot of us. Best of everything to you. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
Hi, I've been on a Avastin, with a low dose of taxotere since the end of July and I'm doing very well with it. I was on taxotere for over a year before the Avastin was added due to CA 125 rising and a tumor pushing on my ureter. No blood pressure problems, I drink 8 to 10 glasses of water a day, the only complaint I have if any is fatigue. I also have acupuncture and massages which truly help. I hope it helps you as much as it has helped me. Happy holidays.
I don't know what type of ovarian cancer you have I had stage 3c clear cell. I was fortunate to be a candidate for intraperitenil chemotherapy. Your in the US, it adds 3 years plus onto the distance between reoccurance. In April I will be cancer free 6 years. I'm in California, I was seen at city of hope. Best wishes for a happy healthy new year. My friend diagnosed stage 4 given 6 months, saw my Dr. 2 years later cancer free.. My oncologist gyno surgeon is who I see always is Dr Amy Hakim she's in Palm Springs California. If you need help. Best wishes, liz
