I've been having bloating recently so I had my CA125 taken and went to see my oncologist. My numbers are up from 122 to 1,467. It is so strange because I don't actually feel unwell and where I usually get fluid around my lungs they are currently clear.
Anyway I will be having Topotecan. It is a weekly cycle where you have chemo every day for a week and then 3 weeks off. I will have a port as my veins have kind of disappeared from the last onslaught!!!! I will be starting 12th September.
My biggest hope is that I can still keep my hair and that it doesn't make me feel ill. OH, AND IT WORKS :)
Please, has anyone else had this chemo and how have you been on it?
