This is an update on my low dose Doxil treatment.
As I have posted in the past M.D. Anderson suggested low Dose Doxil for me every six weeks.
I just had my latest ca 125 results and it went up from 475 to 884. I will find out next week what my Doctor will suggest, and wanted to get your opinion.
I was without any chemo for 2 months before this low dose. I am wonder if the Doxil hasn't kicked in yet. When I went to M.D. Anderson I hadn't had chemo for 5 weeks and my ca 125 went from 731 to 383. Do you think the Doxil hasn't had enough time?
I really hope this is the case, because I have felt so good with dose and minimal side effects. I am really disappointed and was hoping this would work because of how good I have been feeling, but would like to know your opinion about continuing. I don't want to continue if the doxil is not working, and get into trouble. I have also been wondering what you think about Avemar and have been wanting to ask you about it for quite some time.
