Cervical adenocarcinoma metastasized to my left abdominal wall and both lungs

I was diagnosed with cervical adenocarcinoma in 2012. I had a radical hysterectomy and lymphadenectomy followed by 6 weeks of Cisplatin chemotherapy and radiation treatments. I went into remission for 3 years. In 2015 I found a lump on my left side and the biopsy results came back positive for metastatic adenocarcinoma. The cancer is on my left abdominal wall and both of my lungs. My oncologist gave me 6 weeks of chemotherapy and radiation, then I began Avastin chemotherapy every 3 weeks, and was told that I had to continue the Avastin chemo for the rest of my life. On Thursday morning I will have my 63rd cycle of Avastin chemotherapy. I have sore muscles and bones and a little nausea ?? for about 2 weeks after chemotherapy, and then a week of feeling better. I take psych drugs for bipolar with schizophrenic features, and have been on most of the meds for 15 years (at least)! I had an antipsychotic Perphenazine. I ran out of it in February of 2018 and didn't refill it. I began to have garbled speech and balance issues,I started to get dizzy spells and fell down a lot. My oncologist sent me to the neurologist with a new MRI. The MRI showed lesions on the white matter of my brain and the neurologist believed that the Avastin combined with Perphenazine drop is causing the lesions started early stage dementia. I have a new antipsychotic Abilify and it has alleviated some of the issues I have been having. I can't seem to find any answer to the question"how long do people survive on Avastin chemotherapy? I'm hoping maybe someone else on long term Avastin can share their experiences with me!?? Thanks for reaching out to me. Aunt Kim
