After Chemo, my short hair, everyone seemed to like it better! Just being kind I think.
Thank you for the reply.
I’m just trying to find someone who has had the combo Carboplatin and Doxil. Or even a different combination with Carbo. Best of luck to you teal sister. R

I’m heading to Mayo today in Arizona. My doctors there are wonderful.
I am having my first recurrence of Ovarian Cancer and pretty scared.
I will be getting surgery and chemo. This time I think it will be Carboplatin and Doxil .
Has anyone had that and what side effects did you have?

I also went into remission , but didn’t stop eating what I like. I also know a friend who said he didn’t stop sugar in his food and had cancer in 2 parts of his body, throat and prostate, he’s been in remission now for 17 years .
Life is short, I want to enjoy mine. There isn’t the data about a lot of the things people say.

Trust the facts about what we have to stop it now and maybe we will have something that truly works.

How long have you had your cancer? Have you had any trouble with the chemo? Yes, I go to Mayo, and when I’m in Washington I go to Dr. Raish and Dr. Swisher at the University of Washington . There was a disagreement on the corse of action this time, so I going back to Mayo
Because I felt they were right. Just a gut decision ,
But that’s how I felt.

Hello, thanks for listening. I feel very lucky to have a husband that is a Specialist , but not in Cancer and he knows the questions to ask and they speak the same language . He has been a huge help for me. I’m 71, and feel very happy for the wonderful life I’ve had and the great friends too.
The young women are the ones I pray will see a cure in the near future , meanwhile my trust is in God and My doctors.

Hello, I have just found out about my recurrence a month ago with pain in my right lower pelvis, the scan showed the recurrence. My CA125 was up and had been gradually going up over the months. I had two differences in opinion on what to do. One Oncologist favoring Carbo platin and Doxil and the other favoring surgery and then followed by Carbo and Avastin , or another drug . I was in remission for 18 months with Carbo and Taxol . Has anyone had this experience?
