Picking up on the conversation from an earlier post. I was able to attend a lecture given by my GYN/ONC for medical professionals (nurses & doctors). A friend "snuck" me in since I am neither a doctor or a nurse. My doc was very frank (and he knew I was there) about the treatments for cancer. He told this group that you could put all of the treatments in a bag and have the patient pick one out to try. Some tx work for some people and some don't. IF there was a CURE for OVCA, we would all be on it. I think it is important for each individual to read as much as possible on the treatments for this disease. We would not have AVASTIN, if someone hadn't stepped up to the plate in a trial. Having said that, I am a hugh chicken to do a Phase I or Phase II trial. I would consider Phase III knowing that I am getting a drug with definite possibilities. I know of a lady who tried everything and was told last November she would not make the end of the year. She just celebrated 4th of July and is holding her own nicely. Why?? Who knows. There are not solid answers .. just questions and that is why it is so important to read all that you can. Quite honestly, I don't understand all that I read, but I read nonetheless. Here are a couple of websites to consider: http://www.womenandcancermag.com/ ** http://www.asco.org/ ** http://www.cancer.net/cancer. I am still considering Essiac Tea and/ or Ginger Tea.
