edited March 2014 in Ovarian Cancer #1
I saw the gyn/onc/surgeon today and we high fived. The scan showed no change, still clear since Oct.
The Femara is holding the cancer cells back. The CA125 is stable at 50 and does not concern him. He did not even do a pelvic, since there was no change. He was not concerned with the cold that I am fighting. Aren't doctors compartmentilized? :-( No other appointments until the middle of April. The longest I have gone without test or treatment.

I do have the bone density test on the 26th that will see if the Femara is destroying my bones. Otherwise I am stable for now.

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY, EVERYONE!!

    High Five Is Right
    Alright Saundra- More good news. I hope this good news keeps on going. Is femara a drip drup or pill? I have done about all the chemos but not sure on that one. OH I pray this keeps on going well. I do Etopiside drip next week. Hopefully it will do well again. I am so happy for you and with Bonnie's being stable this is a good month.
    Happy Valentine's Day
    God Bless and all keep the good news coming
    Prayers and Hugs

    Saundra,

    Excellent news for you. Praying that your bones are not being destroyed. And Praising God you are stable. Ever use Zicam for your colds? That is what I use and seems to keep it from progressing.

    HAPPY VALENTINES DAY TO ALL, TOO!!

    In His Love,

    Femara
    Thanks, Sandy
    Femara is an anti estrogen pill like tamoxifen for breast cancer and works on about 1/3 of ovarian my doctor says. Since it is working on me, I think my cells must be estrogen driven tho i was never told.
    I was on HRT until diagnosis. The side effects are hot flashes galore and bone degeneration. I am having my bones tested this month to see what 4 months of the pill has done. ☺ Saundra

    Great News
    Hi Saundra,

    This is such good news! I don't know if I am estrogen-positive, either, but my CA-125 has continued its downward trend all of these months. I'm going to ask my oncologist if I should be concerned about bone loss, also.

    The hot flashes are something else, and they seem to be getting worse! I'm also losing a big toenail, which I've read can be a side effect. More to ask the doc about...

    Hugs, Sue
