I am a CA ovary patient who wnet through complete hysterectomy in end of 2005 followed by six three weekly cycles of chemo -- taxel and platin. The doctor then had siad that I had 1C. I was in remission till May 2009 when my CA 125 shot up and the disease progression was confirmed by a PET scan. Some advised surgery; others wanted me to avoid it at all costs. At the end I just had 18 weekly rounds of chemotherapy, again the same ones.
After a little over a year the cancer has come back. The doctor again suggests surgery followed by chemotherapy. I have heard of the cyber-knife. Is this a possible alternative? If so please advise. I need to make up my mind fairly quick. Thanks, Muna
