Okay, here it is, a new thread on the Gemzar and Cisplatin combo. Only, now it is hard to remember who said which for the last few messages.
Anita, where is your CA125 after your 5 treatments? any guess as to how many more?
Jean and MichaelaMarie, I have not had any real hair loss, either, after 1 1/2 treatments.
That one week off, with both two weeks in a row sounds rough - please keep us posted. My counts would not allow that schedule to take place. Are you getting Neulasta?
Anyway, for whoever wanted to know where we're coming from. I live in eastern, rural North Carolina and am stage 3c. I was first dx in 11/05, 8 rounds of carbo/taxol then NED till 4/08, first recurrence achieved NED 12/08, started back on chemo this June. Personally, I believe that I did not fully achieve remission in '08, and this is still the first recurrence rather than the second. I guess it really doesn't much matter, though, does it? Thanks to all. This is so hugely helpful!!
Love and hugs, Carol
