Has anyone done Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy (SBRT) to kill a nodule that that grew  (from 1 cm to 3 cm) while undergoing chemotherapy that in 3 rounds killed everything else and CA125 is now  normal.

I didn't have anything grow during chemo, but the SBRT sounds like a good idea for your circumstances. Then you may also want to look into genomic testing to see what else would work on that nodule since it seems to be resistant to your current chemo. That's what's concerning and arming your oncologist with more information could only help you get what would work.

I did 5 rounds of SBRT radiation without any side effects but it only slightly shrunk the tumor. I will be meetimng with my gyne oncologist this week to see what the next course of action will be. I expect more chemotherapy.

Sorry guess radiation is a treatment not a round.
