Hi Everyone, My ca125 is up to 69 and today I start oral etoposide. The next choice is tamoxifen, but hopefully the etoposide works. Of course the usual side affects and I guess I can say goodbye to my hair again. :-(
My Dr says it has about a 20% rate as do most of the treatment obtions available. I guess we just keep reaching into the bottom of the barrel trying to find something. I go for a CT Scan on Tuesday to see why I am so bloated and having the increased pain. We are hoping it is the lymphocele and not so much the cancer.
If you been on oral Etoposide and have any tips to share I'd appreciate it. I don't know anyone who has taken this drug. Thanks much.
Prayers N Hugs Bonnie
