Are you on Carbo and Doxil? And for how long? Thanks

I did the 72 hr fast for my first chemo for Ovc , now that’s a long fast! Carbo & Doxel , I didn’t get sick on the third day.

I’m on my second recurrence now, with Carbo and Doxil, the third was my bad day, but it could have been worst if I hadn’t fasted for 60 hours.
And that was hard, I like to eat, but I was told the best way to do it was to fast and it effects the cancer cells harder! Well I like that idea, and I didn’t get very much nausea either.
So far so good.
I declined on the major surgery , because I didn’t think I could handle it, but mostly because they have shown that taking Chemo or the surgery doesn’t show any difference in recurrence. In fact Germany is really studying this idea and believe the Chemo does the same results without the damage the surgery does to our bodies.

Hi, I agree with the person who “said, talk to someone without a degree in psychology.
They are so prepared with what they are going to tell you that they don’t listen. I had a terrible time with one. She must not have been listening because she gave me a book on a troubled life with parents! I had a great childhood growing up on a farm in Washington, I’m still close with my childhood friends and my parents were wonderful.

They seem to get so far off track and that’s because most people who go into Psychology had many childhood problems.
“(Talk with people who understand your fears of the disease we have.)
I will never talk to a person who thinks they know our fears , unless they have experienced them first hand.
I’m on my second recurrence, its not easy, but I want to get the most enjoyment out of what life I have , look for the good in people and you always find it.
The teal sisters I know are the Best bunch of women , positive
and wanting to help others
with anything that are dealing with in their Cancer journey.
Look for the Beauty and you will see it.

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.
