Hey all! It's been a while since I've been here. Well my CA125 is down to 17.1!!!! Doc finally allows me to call it remission, but he still wants me to continue with chemo, as long as I can, if I can handle it, but it's up to me. I've had 11 treatments now, plus surgery, I've really had enough. However, if I continue with treatments or not, I am going to always have doubt if I did the right thing. There are risks with the amout of treatments I have had and even more risks doing more. Plus, if I don't have anymore and I relapse, then I will wonder if it's because I didn't do more treatments... lovely isn't it? Has anyone had to make this sort of decision or has anyone had more than 11 treatments? (carbo/taxol) what are my risks? when do the side effects kick in? I already have some slight neuropathy in my hands a little in my feet. I welcome any and all responses. I can also be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you and God Bless!
