I think even my dr was surprised ! My CT/Pet scan did not find any cancer ! I just finished six rounds of carbo/taxol. Originally she thought she would have to go back in after chemo as she could not take out all the cancer without removing the entire colon.
Now she is going to give me six rounds of Avastin.
They did see something in my kidney but she is confident that it is unrelated to ovca. I will be seeing a urologist for that. Just wanted to share my good news especially for you who are going thru the carbo/taxol treatment it's tough but it works hang in there !

    Cogratulations! I agree about the carbo/taxol treatment... I just celebrated my one year anniversary of being NED and my oncologist is finally comfortable with removing my port!
    Praying for all of you!

    Good, good good. Avastin
    Good, good good. Avastin maintenance is the "new black" of OVCA chemo. Hope it works for you and keeps NED hanging around for many years to come.

    Your news
    Oh Colleen---this is like a dream come true. I am so happy for you. My mom is also having a good response to the carbo/taxol. Her CA-125 is down to 42 from 1100!!!! I also wanted to let you know that I thought your wig was awesome. I never would have even known you were wearing one! Cool highlights.

    It was great running in to you in Buffalo.
