When I first diagnosed of OVCA, I had the standard Platinum chemotherapy as well as the debulking surgery. However, my ‘NED’ was only 3-4 months long. Since June last year, my CA-125 has climbed from 8 to 140. My recent CT scans found enlarged lymph nodes and a lesion (2cm x 2cm) in the small bowel mesentery.
My oncology suggested chemo and surgery.
I am very upset that the cancer has come back so soon.
Do you know any chemotherapy regimens for recurrence?
How good or effective are they?
As my NED was less than 6 months, does that mean the ‘Platinum’ chemotherapy will not work for me this time?
I look forward to your valuable information and support.
