boy....i knew i shouldn't have gotten my hopes up. two weeks ago when i had my last chemo (gemzar) the nurse told me my ca125 level had gone from 1382 down to 750....a drop of over 600 points! wouldn't that make you assume the gemzar was working? today i saw my oncologist for last week's petscan results and he tells me the disease is progressing. he says that means the gemzar is not working. i tried to make the argument that maybe the progression would have been worse if i wasn't on the gemzar...he said either it works or it doesn't work...no in between. now i'm hoping to get into a clinical trial or find some doxil since those seem to be my only two remaining options.
