I'm writing this to hopefully encourage you. I was diagnosed with stage IV ovarian 6 yrs ago. After the major de-bulking I started my chemo. I've been on taxol-carbo,gemzar-carbo, gemzar-cisplatin and now I'm starting Doxil. In between I took arimidex, Avastin(great drug) had an ablasion on my liver (that's where it moved to) removed one whole tumor and everything around it, and removed 50% of the other one. I'm telling you this because after 6 yrs of going through all this I'm still alive and kickin! God gave me a strong will to live and he's been with me all the way! This is a war! Keep fighting! You live long enough they come up with more treatments. I intend to keep fighting until my doctor says to stop or God takes me to heaven. I'v been blessed that I've never had pain from my cancer and I have a doctor that keeps trying. Hope this was helpful.

Thanks for sharing your status. My 56 years old mother detected ovarian cancer last year in August and she got de-bulking on 3rd aug 2015. After operation she received 6 cycle chemo of taxol and carbo. Her ca125 was 1080 and after chemo down to 16, and we were very happy on this. Cancer spread to her colon, so doctor removed some portion of colon and set ielostomy bag for stool. it is very painful for her and need to change every week. After three of chemo complete, in routine check showed all reports (ct scan, ultrasound, other blood test) are good except the ca125 it rose to 133. doctor suggest us to do PET CT Scan. PET CT Scan result showed that tumor return a liver. so doctor suggest GEMCETABIN, and already 3 cycle completed next day we will do the CA125 again. hope that will show a good result. by the way, we are from Bangladesh.

I am so happy you are a Survivor... I also have had Ovarian Cancer, it moved into the lining of my abdomen, and then back to the pelvic.. I have been in remission for a year but now think my cancer is becoming active again from my numbers rising.... I dread the thought of chemo again or possibly radiation.. Depends on where it shows its ugly head.. Keep fighting as i will be too and hopefully in a few years we will be here in remission again..... Janine

Hi! I can't believe this message has been sitting here so long. Almost 2 years. How are you doing??
I have completed 5 treatments since November, with one left. Hopefully it's working.
Please let me know how you are doing?

I am completing my treatment: 5 down, 1 to go. So far, scan and Ca125 show improvement, but I know it's an uphill climb.
How is your mother doing? I hope better. Get back and let me know. Sending prayers.
