My mother was diagnosed in October 2012 with stage 1 grade 3 uterine cancer. Radical hysterectomy with Omentum removed. 3 rounds brachytherapy and told she was in remission. In May 2013 we ended up in the hospital with ascites ( fluid in the abdominal cavity) news that it was now stage 4b with malignancy in abdomen and multiple organs in that region. She handled 8 rounds of carbo/toxal that took her ca125 from 12000 (yes thousands) to 111 and dried up her ascites. Within 8 weeks ca125 back up to 1200...now over 6000 after the first round of Doxil. Going to the dr tomorrow because she's having signs of her acsites returning and just feeling like the Doxil is not working. She's due for round 3 of Doxil. Just wondering if anyone has a similar situation and what happens next? She's 69 years old.
