3C ovarian cancer: tumor markers gradually rising, what's next?
@starko, I'm with @odette and wanting to check in with you. How are you?

Things are not going well. My cancer markers had continued to slowly increase and drugs (metformin, Lynparza ) seem to not make a difference. The cancer has traveled from my ovaries to my brain. It was suggested by a local neurosurgeon that I have an immediate MRI which indicated a huge growth on my lower cerebellum. This growth was removed the following day and suddenly my cancer markers became normal. I am scheduled for four brain radiation sessions beginning next week. If all that is successful, I assume I will be put on avastin. We are also testing to see if the cancer has permeated my esophagus. More MRIs for brain, spine coming up this week.
