Is there anyone out there who has been diagnosed with LMP ovarian cancer and had a recurrence. I am a 38 year old, who was first diagnosed with LMP ovarian cancer at age 32. I had a hysterectomy and debulking surgery at that time and followed up with exams and CA125's every 3 months. I was going on my sixth year of being cancer free, and had a recurrence January 2004 (by the way my CA125 was only 26 day prior to the surgery). I had a cancerous mass in my bladder this time, and there was a different type of cell present in addition to the LMP. Therefore, I had the standard six rounds of chemo and just finished six weeks ago. Since then I have had another CT scan and it looks like the chemo did not help. Now I am exploring other treatment options. Does anyone have any advice for me???

You are in my prayers. I'm newly dx OvCa but I'm wondering ifyou've had second opinion or sought information on clinical trials through nci.nih.gov?
