You're in my thoughts today. Hi Helmar, thinking of you from Sydney, I haven't been on medhelp much lately but I noticed that you haven't posted in a while, so I hope you are feeling well and everything is okay with you and if not then please know you are in my thoughts and prayers. Carolyn
I posted a question for you, not sure if you got it.
I read about how well the combination of chemos ( first Topotecan and then Taxotere/Carbo ) are working for you. I discussed your oncol's theory with my mom's oncol (he did not agree) and he called for another PET SCAN and it showed some cancer activity in the Lymph system and some water retention in the stomach (ascitis) now she started on Gemzar 2 rounds (one a week for three weeks and two weeks of rest ) her CA 125 was 815 prior to the PET SCAN. Has your oncol had any other successes going that route?
