Hi gals, just a quick update. I am almost finished 6 doses of avastin and am getting my 6th/DC (taxotere and carbo) this week. My CA125 seems to have leveled off, and my body is leveling down, so I asked if I could take a month off of the treatment. My doc wants me to stay on the same combo after my break, but meanwhile I am going to take tamoxifen.
I also started taking cymbalta to treat my neuropathy. It does seem to be helping, although the numbness is not completely gone. It is a controversial drug, and can be dangerous if you stop it cold turkey. I am posting the abstract from ASCO.
Has anyone else tried this for neuropathy?
