I finished with my six rounds of Gemzar/Carbo, my follow-up PET/CT scan is clear, and my CA-125 is 7. Yay! Much rejoicing and sighs of relief.

I sort of expected this, but was hoping for a chemo break. The Gemzar/Carbo combo is not that bad, except for my hair. It has woefully thinned, and now I'm wondering if it will have a chance to grow back at all in the near future. Has anyone been on Gemzar/Carbo maintenance?
Anyway, that's my update. I'll do anything to keep NED's evil twin ED from returning!
Fight. Win. Believe!
