6 weeks may June 2016
Beginning in April I had three treatments with Taxol and carbo platinum as well as Avastin. Joint pain was rough but gone after a week or so. I've mostly been easily tired out. My CA125 went up so I had another PETCT that showed an increase in the cancer I am now getting Doxil every four weeks and Avastin every two weeks. Side effects have been relatively mild - just tired a lot.
February to May 2014
Carbo and Taxil, 6 cyles. Deep bone pain, dizziness, blood clot in lung, breathless
07/20/2017 - Extremely tired, some nausea, fidgety legs, no energy for a week.
Begin Chemo on Aug. 8th of 2017
1.Carnoplatin/Taxol...March 30 2016 & continued for 18 straight weeks plus 4.5 blood transfusions 2.Folfox...May 2017 4 infusions then stopped because it wasn't working...
First chemo was on Friday 9/15/17. 3 chemo infusions over 8 hours. To be done every 3 weeks. Next scheduled 10/6/17. Have had no nausea or vomiting. Saturday night, severe pressure in rectum, vaginal area and lower pelvic region. Contacted physician due to pain and that no amount of medicine was subsiding pain. Was advised that it seems as if the chemo is working. The pressure could be due to the necrotic tissue from the cancer itself is moving, liquid retention, or inflammation from the chemo. He reassured me that pain and pressure should go away within a few days. Was instructed to take higher dose of percocet. The higher dose of pain meds has done its due diligence, but knocks me out too. It is now three days later and pain and pressure has become more bearable, and treatable with 800mg motrin. Feeling extremely tired, which is very odd being that I am very active. Powering through, I will win this battle.
weakness, dehydration, diarrhea, constipation
Six rounds in 2008 and 12 rounds in 2015 got through these not too bad in the big scheme of things.
