| | Life after chemotherapy without remission, ovarian
I have ovarian cancer. Malignant cells were found inside my colon in February, 2000, and surgery was done in March. Staging was IIIC.
I was on four regimens of chemotherapy for a year with limited success. I have been on tamoxifen for 4 months. My CA125 has come down some. We are hoping that will contine. But the prognosis is not good. I am rather resigned to the probability that I will not survive this disease. At present there are no detectible solid tumors. But every time I get a pain or a twitch, I wonder if it could be the cancer.
My question is: I would like some information on how this disease might progress if I do not go into remission. I do have some information from my doctor, but I would like to know what other people have gone through. I have found very little information on the internet about what happens after treatment when the treatment does not work.
Right now, life is good. I feel great and am doing all kinds of fun things. I hope this lasts forever, but I want to be prepared with information if it does not. Thanks
