CT Scan Shows Cancer is back

My CT showed new peritoneal carcinomatosis, metastatic lymph nodes and metastatic liver lesions. I am trying to get into a Clinical Trial where everyone get Doxil and 50% get a targeted therapy. It is double blind so I will not know if I get the drug.

I am feeling great so it stinks I have to go through chemo again. So far the treatment is worse than the Cancer itself.

Not the kind of news anyone wants. I hope you can get into the trial. Gotta have some hope that a treatment is out there that will kick cancer's ugly derriere. Each one is so different and responds differently. Here's hoping they get the right mix just for you.

The cancer showed up in the liver a month after I stopped chemo but my CA125 did not rise for six months. I got in the study. It is a mess every time I go to clinic they have no doctors orders and can't do the tests or they forget tests like ekgs or a Chest CT-Scan. I have had 3 CT-Scans this month alone.
They told me they are making the the same mistakes with all the study patients. I expect more from Duke.
