I am dealing with my first recurrence which began in September 2016 3 months after I finished my frontline treatment and maintenance . I have been tested for BRCA 1&2 and I am negative. I believe that I a still Platin sensitive. Was doing well until my bloods told us otherwise. I have now missed two weeks in a row which is frustrating . At least my CA125 had returned to "normal" after the first three rounds. I am stuck at round 5. My bone marrow is screaming out for the chemo to stop. My husbands' take on this is that it will be two more weeks before I would be " eligible" for a recurrence.
Apart from feeling tired and not motivated to do anything much chemo has been relatively kind to me except for weight gain ( others lose weight but not me) from the steroids I think!!
I am keen to find a drug trial. As I live in Darwin this will be an obstacle to overcome if I am successful.
If anyone has any ideas regarding dealing with a reluctant bone marrow or potential drug trials I would be most appreciative of your advice. Best wishes from Sunny Darwin
