You are in my thoughts and prayers. Hope you are going well and still pushing on. It is difficult at times but we are women and we are strong.
I have lost lots of weight but thankful I had some to lose. Lost Dear Janet as a friend in about March this year. She was like a long lost friend. She regularly emailed and we phoned each other regularly. I am not on any treatment at the moment Just Oxycontin for pain. much love, hope to hear from you.

Hi Therese, I have not been on here for ages, just thought I would check and see who was still round to chat. My friend Janet 535 passed away in February/march this year. Very sad. We had kept in touch via phone on a regular basis. I am still going well, CA125 4,580 last week, could be better but not ready to give up yet. Still work one day a week. Much love and hugs Dorothy

Teresa,
I am doing better after my visit to MD Anderson. Ducts in my liver had become blocked by my tumor,so bile was building up in my liver. I will be going back either next week or the following week to have my external catheter (that is draining the bile) replaced with an internal catheter. Also I will meet again with my gyn. onc. to discuss the next step in my chemo treatments...contniue with current chemo or try something new. I haven't had any chemo since 1/4 and I only had 1 treatment of the  chemo regime recommended by my local oncologist, so right now just getting stronger and in a holdong pattern.  Hope you get into a study/clinical trial  at MD Anderson. Take care. Julie

Hi Teresa,

Targeted therapy phase trials - wow.  Sounds intense.  Do you know who is heading them up?  I assume by your note that it would be an everyday thing since you spoke of getting an apartment.  What's the schedule like for that?  Is the Avastin/Cytoxan combo showing any results at all?  I just last week learned my new doc is Dr. Coleman.  I looked him up on the website and read about him.  Seems like he has a good head on his shoulders, so we'll see how it goes.  I see him April 7.  They extended time between visits to 4 months for me.  Makes me nervous in one way, but happy in another.

Think of you often and as always, sending you lots of prayers, hugs, and love!

Hi Teresa,
My CA125 numbers went down and then up a bit even thought the CT scan was very positive.  Have a nice holiday!

Doicat-
Happy Thanksgiving!  I hope you are doing well.  I wanted to give you an update as we are pretty much on the same track. I have been on Avastin for 3 months and had a ct scan last Friday to see how well it was working. Had my Dr apt tuesday and it showed "significant improvement!" I am thrilled. My blood pressure has also gone up. It is a side effect of the treatment and the dr said if it got any higher I would need to go on bp meds. She also said headaches are a side effect of high blood pressure. So far I have had no side effects from the Avastin. I hope it works for many many many years!  I hope it is working as well for you!

HI Teresa,
The avastin treatment went fine, they just had a little trouble getting a good vein.  I'm resisting getting a port, although I know lots of people that have them and they say they are no problem and don't prevent them from doing anything.  I guess to me it symbolizes a progression of disease.  Thats GREAT news that your tumor has shrunk significantly!  I am from Long Beach, CA.  Take care!

THANKS for your msg.  I go today for my avastin. Then on the 20th, I have a ct scan.  I am very optimistic. And I have no side effects, so I love this treatment. Lets keep in touch.

Hi Teresa,
I think of you often as well since we both have daughters very close in age.  The Mayo Clinic gave me a list of all their current clinical trials.  I will write a private note with all the info for you to see.  Hope you are feeling well.

Teresa,
Sorry to hear you are off the trial but glad to hear the new chemo is easier to take and you getting to enjoy some of your favorite foods. I am doing ok. I have another round of chemo on Monday and am hoping to get my test results from my doctor. I am currently on carboplatin and etoposide which is by far much easier than cisplatin and etoposide. I did get some good news...I had a bone scan and the techs said they couldn't see any cancer mestasised to my bones :) . I am hoping this chemo is working but I am not confident because my pain on my right side is getting stronger but maybe it is caused by something other than cancer. I know my oncologists and I will discuss that on Monday. Have a happy Halloween and keep in touch. Julie

Hi Teresa,
Thanks for your note back in April.  I haven't been on this site in so long.  I follow my emails and should get on more often.
My mother has been doing great.  She is having some pain in her high abdomen and stomach area, yet her ca 125 doesn't reflect it.  It is has gone from 5 to 7.  We are going to pursue it further in the next week or two.

I have followed you when you add a journal entry through the emails.  I realize when I get on site, it is the best way to keep up with everyone.  Hope you are doing ok.  Thinking of you.  Chopps

I'm so glad to hear this treatment is helping.  MD Anderson is the best possible place to be, and I'll be interested to hear how this protocol does.  Hope the side effects are nonexistent or minimal at least.

  Thank you Teresa! That much of a drop was a shock for me also. And I am hoping that it will continue dropping for awhile. Even if it is not that big of a drop. You are right, the pioson is working.
  Love Chris

Hi Teresa,

I've been bad at keeping in touch with you.  How did the latest visit go?  Do you mind sharing your "iffy" news?  Hope you're feeling good otherwise!

Teresa,
Felt like I was in a coma for 5 days.  No vomiting but diarrhea, rapid pulse, sweating, extreme nausea and worst chemo fog brain ever.  I am not where you are emotionally anymore.  With the first round, I was going for remission so was willing to endure any punishment.  Now I'm thinking, with the bad days outnumbering the good and with only a 10% chance that this regimen will just prolong my life a few months, is it worth it?  Not sure what other options I have, just don't want to be a semi alert lump in the back room of the house, moaning and groaning while everybody else deserves to go on with their lives.  Promised my hubby I'd go back in the chair one more time and I keep my promises.  Wish I didn't at this point, it's hanging over my head on what few good days I've got.   S
