Hi im new i just found you guys and have had ppc for 3 yrs.I went to my OB GYN and kept complaining for yrs about pain she sent me for an ultrasound and did a pap smear and said there was nothing there!This didnt happen just once it happened many times and i felt like she thought i was a hypocondriact(sry for spelling)So i went to my PC and he sent for a ct scan and found it ! Unfortunately it was stage 3 by then!I went for my debulking surgery had a full hysterectomy did 6 rounds of chemo (carbo and taxol) I went into remission for 3 yrs and now its back and im scared to death!! My Dr wants to start me on chemo again the same kind and im wondering if there is anything else out there that would work? I have seen Doxil come up a few times and Xyotol can someone tell me about them and the side effects.Oh my Dr also said my ppc is very slow growing. I just read an article that recurring ppc is basicly down hill from there.I am so glad i found this it is so hard talking to my family they say they understand but they dont.
