HI Ladies. 

I am seriously considering setting up an appointment at this intergrative wellness center. Do or have any of you used this approach?

I've had carbo/taxol/avastin with about 6 or 7 months remission. avastin for maintenance. recurrence in lymph nodes (May ,2012) one year after surgery. 3 rounds taxol/cistplatin. Doxil kept me stable for ten months. I have had three months of topotecan. Scans yesterday, awaiting those results.

My dr. seems to think we're running out of options. Gemzar and one other if topotecan doesn't work. I have spoke with the doctor at this center. He said he would work with the doctor. Should I decide to remain on chemo he would support that decision although he himself is anti-chemo.

I'm just grasping at straws. I'm 51. I'm too young to die. Also I feel too good to die. 

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Thanks Ladies,

Hi Carla

have you thought about any clinical trials?

If Gemzar doesn't help, I'm going  to inquire about the clinical trial next.
