About Me: Female, 45, Murray, KY, member since Oct 2005
Dx with Ovarian Cancer, stage IIIC on August 29, 2005. First recurrence was discovered during gallbladder surgery in April 2007. Have had Taxol/Carboplatin, Topotecan, Gemzar, Gemzar/Navelbine, Femara, Gemzar/Taxotere, and Gemzar/Doxil. I have low grade cancer cells,
[More] so we're looking for a treatment that will work for that. I was on an aromatase inhibitor called Aromasin until my second recurrence was discovered in December 2010. I'm still working out my next treatment with my doctor. He's leaning towards clinical trials, but we'll see.
Through this process, I also learned I have Crohn's disease. Thankfully it is not completely active at the moment, but I am on a boatload of medication to keep it in check. I get CT's every three months for the cancer, so my doctor is able to keep a good watch on how the Crohn's is progressing, as well.
You probably don't even check on here anymore but I am not on FB so I don't know how to reach you. I have been thinking of you alot and I hope you are doing good. If you get this, let me know ok? Hope to hear you are well. Miss talking to you!
