     Whom has been on this combo and what  success  have  you  had   also what  side effect.  I am  getting very nauseated on  this  combo  which  is driving me  nutty .  Days of  feeling sick   are  kinda  frustrating  I  don;t mind  being  tired  but   vomits  is no fun.  I am  taking an it  vomit meds  but they don;t seem to be  working,  I am  going to ask for  Zofrin next  time  it works  better for  me .

    My  ca  125  has  dropped  from 188  to 139  which is  really good ....am  restless and  very impatient which is  not  like me and  emotional  am  not  sure   if the  treatment is  doing this   its  very  much  out of  character for  me  ........  anyways  :)   ......am strong  my  blood  work is    great and  I am  tough I can  fight this  new   tumor  it was   6.5  cm and  on my   urethra  have a  stint in now and  hopefully  the  kidney will  not  be  stressed  ....I read  everyone's  posts  I  feel  so inspired  I  am not  giving  up   am way to stubborn  ....  hugs Donna  xoxo

I have not been on this combo but wanted you to know how sorry I am that you are suffering with the side effects.  I encourage you to contact your doctor now about getting something different for the vomit/nausea.  I know how difficult it is to stay hydrated when you are nauseated and vomiting.  If you can, suck on popsicles or perhaps ginger ale.

I'm glad that your CA 125 has dropped; that's a good sign.  Being stubborn and strong are great qualities for fighting this cancer!

I hope your naturapath is able to help you and you feel better soon.  Nausea and vomiting are no fun. Frown

Take care,
