← Return to Ovarian Cancer: Should I go on Maintenance Therapy?

Comment receiving replies

Sorry I haven’t been active on here for a while but wanted to give an update. Diagnosed 6/16/16, 3C high grade serous, been on non stop therapy since then, Carbo/Taxol, Carbo /Gemzar, zejula, Lynparza, clinical trial Herceptin and Perjeta, back to Carbo/Taxol/ with Avastin and Avastin only infusions every 3 weeks since April. Next week is number 17. First time in 4 years that I haven’t had a big jump in my CA125, it’s been consistently in the 30’s. It was 4600 when I was diagnosed. So I’m positive that it’s keeping my tumors from growing. So I highly recommend doing what your oncologist recommends. My side effects are manageable and I’m in no pain. Good luck and feel free to ask any questions.

HI Dale
Thank you so much for sharing! What exactly were your side effects when you were on Zejula? That is the drug I am looking at. I work at a school and have been on medical leave since my surgery. I am looking to return to work in a few weeks and am concerned about being on a drug that may weaken my immune system. You have been on so many meds, Dale! I wonder if you remember for Zejula if your blood counts were low at all? Or how the fatigue was?
Thank you again for sharing.
