I was diagonosed with ov c111 Jan 2005. I had IP chemo for 6 treatments. The end of Sept 2006 they found something on my ct scan above the liver dome. My ca125 was normal at 12. In fact in July it was up to 18 due to an enffected tooth. Went down to 13 by Sept. and in Oct down to 12. A pet scan showed tumors in the chest wall. I understand it is rare to have the oc spread into the chest wall. I started a new study, phase 11, using carboplatin and topopecan last Friday. So far the nausia has been very very mild. and I feel pretty good. I am hoping for good results from this round of chemo. I understand one just goes into remission when this stuff returns and never goes away. Has anyone gone into complete remission after a second round of treatment.
