My wife was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 7/2000 and a complete hysterectomy with 16 lymph node removal was performed. Since cancer showed in 2 nodes, she was treated with taxol+carboplatin and was free for 18 months. The cancer came back in both lungs. Carboplatin treatment destroyed the tumors in the left lung but the major tumor with minute ones in the right lung were resistant. She was treated with doxil - no good and then with gemsar+cisplatin - no good. Nothing seems to affect these tumors and they are growing again. Has anyone experienced this or heard of something else that could be used. Thanks for any help you can give.
