Fri, May 3 9:32pm · Olaparib (trade name Lynparza), metformin and ovarian cancer in Gynecologic Cancers

I’ve been taking metformin for years and asked my oncologist about it (thinking maybe I needed a stronger dose) and he said it hasn’t been proven to help with cancer. I also have 3C high grade serous. Lynparza is supposed to help keep it at bay but it didn’t work for me. Once it’s in your lymph nodes it seems to travel to different locations. Hopefully this new treatment is the one that works for me. Will pray Lynparza works for you!!

I was on Lynparza for 6 months with no side effects but my tumors metastasized so they took me off and I am currently on a clinical trial called TAPUR. Everyone reacts differently so what doesn’t work for one may work for another. Good luck.

@odette, nice to hear from you. If I can help in any way, let me know, we are all in this together and it’s great to have another survivor to communicate with. I have been to a few Gyn retreats and we have several non profits that support Ovarian and GYN cancer that hold fundraisers and events in our area (Charlotte, NC). We keep in contact through private FB groups and support each other. It really helps to have someone that understands what we are going through.

Thanks for responding. I should find out this week. I have to get an echocardiogram first.

Sorry I haven’t been posting lately, I was spending too much time reading posts on multiple sites like the Facebook group “Sisterhood of Ovarian Cancer Survivors” and all the negative postings were getting me down so I only look when I want to find out about a specific treatment or problem. I guess that’s kind of selfish but I have to be careful I don’t get too depressed. I have 3C high grade, I’m 2 1/2 years since diagnosed and am facing my second recurrence. I’m being considered for the Herceptin trial as I have the Her2 gene. I’m excited about this as not too many ovarian patients have that gene, it was only used previously for breast cancer patients. It’s worked well for them so they think why not work for ovarian. I have tumors on my liver, kidney, aortic lymph and abdomen. If you haven’t had genomic testing I recommend you do as it shows what treatments are the best per your chemistry. I pray everyday for all my teal sisters and private message me if you don’t see me on here. Love and hugs to you all.

I’m trying to keep positive, my daughter has been my research queen and has me using essential oils, charlottes web hemp oil, juicing with a Norwalk juicer, taking immunocal protein, opc antioxidant, and green superfood alkaline detox. So far my cancer marker, ca125 went from 4600 to 1150 a 75% decrease after just 3 chemo treatments so my doctor said to keep doing whatever I’ve been doing! Thanks for your concern, Dale

My name is Dale, I have chemo once a week on Fridays. It was quite a shocking diagnosis as I’m sure everyone else felt the same.
