I am new and not very versed in this kind of communication. However, I would like to have hear what other ladies with UPSC are doing about this nasty little invader.
I was diagnosed in July 2010 with UPSC Stage IIIC. Total HYS in fall 2010. Second lymph node surgery in Jan 2012.
So far two chemos and 2 radiation courses. Just finished the second round of Carboplatin/Taxol chemo in June 2012 and 24 more radiation treatments to address spread to more lymph nodes. Total = 54 radiation treatments and 2 chemo of six three weeks apart.
Well, CA125 started to rise from 30 to 60 almost immediately after chemo ended. Last week had a CT scan and it has spread to liver and CA125 is at 240 with 4, I think, "spots" about as big as half a postage stamp. Bummer. I go the my GYN/ONC 10/12/12 for what comes next. I have been told I am maxed out on radiation therapy.
Anyone out there with thoughts or similar stuff. Would appreciate any info.
