My 79 year old mom was dx 3 years ago stage IIIc ovarian cancer (by accident)had surgery, chemo. now 3 years later onco says CA 125 has risen to 49 - 39 next test. areas lite up on PET scan. We now have another appointment with surgeon. Family doc says she is not a candidate for more surgery. Chemo and surgery from 1st time left her alot weaker than she ever was. She does not really want more Chemo because that left her with nueropathy in her feet. My family also has the BRCA I mutation. So she has seen 2 other sister with ovarian cancer. I get so annoyed that she is kind of giving up, but unsure as to what to do about it. Does anyone have words of wisdom. Oh yeah forgot to mention I am a survivor of Stage 1a lung cancer which was found during my mother's illness.
