Hi everyone, Just wanted to let everyone know that my CAT scan came back and it showed that the desease has increased significantly since the CAT scan I had in May. When I finished chemo in January my CA125 was 7.8. It started to go back up and was as high as 247.7. They started me on Topotecan in June. My numbers started to come down slowly but when I started my 3rd round they started to go back up. It was at 211 when the oncologist decided to send me for this last CAt scan. I just had my first treatment of Doxil today. Or as the nurse calls it "Hawiian Punch" since that is what it looks like!! This drug has a coating which allows it to evade detection and destruction by the immune system, which increases the time the drug is in the body. Hopefully it will do the trick. So far I am feeling okay. I'll let everyone know how it goes in the next few weeks. Hope everyone else is doing well! I am sending out prayers and hugs to all my OVC sisters out there!
