My friend who has been dealing with a recurrence of UPSC in her pelvis and been on chemo since August receives her last "chemo lite" tomorrow. She did 4 cycles of standard big gun carboplatin and taxol, then 4 weekly treatments of Taxotere. Her PET scan in October was clear and her CA-125 last week was 6 and it has been 6 for at least 2 months! She'll have another PET in February or March but that girl is so happy - and so am I. Her recurrence was at 2 years. I hope she gets many more years with this. And, of course, it would be wonderful if this would take care of it forever.
(She was Stage 1b 2 years ago).
