About Me: Female, 56, West Windsor, NJ, member since May 2008
OVCA IIIc in June of 2003 with two recurrences so far -- lost mother to breast cancer 6 months before I was diagnosed --- lost sister to ovarian in 1995 -- married with two kids, two cats, a guinea pig and a hamster -- have had 12 cycles of carbo/taxol total and 6 cycle
[More]s of Doxil -- BRCA1 single mutation ---will now be taking Topotecan as the Doxil didn't work other than to keep it from getting worse (which I guess is something positive)---
Just a quick note to say hi! Helenl feeling a little better. have lots of moments lately, think its the hormones being so out of whack. was sitting at kitch table having cup of tea, and allof a sudden it starts, on line to preoccupie myself. have antidepressants afraid of the side effects, seem to get the nasty side effects of anything I take. example If take the vicadine I get constipated if I don't take it I'm in a lot of pain Jan can't come quick enough to get hip replac' I think I'll feel so much better afterwards. any suggestons?
jeanne, doxil made my skin turn dark and layer upon layer peeled off my hands and feet, the rest of me looked like an overused pincushion. So you are still getting it ? IT is hard call to make when you when you feel like **** do to side effects and see those ca125 levels recede. Quality, quantity ? Hugs back at you, Withe
