My mother in law has recurrent OC. She just finished 6 rounds of Carbo/Taxol. One tumor shrunk to "not visable" and the other went down 70%. Now they want to do a monthly dose of Taxol. She still has "considerable disease burden" on her CT. The chemo really wiped her out and she is now having back/joint pain that has her wondering if it is all worth it. She soesn't know if she could do more chemo. I am going to speak with the MD today to see if we can relieve some of her pain/depression about this. I was wondering if anyone else has had this kind of news and some other treatment ideas. Thanks. Reading these stories does help. We hope that we can have some good quality time with her, not just time.
