Just a quick note to say hi!  Hi,  hope you are doing well.  I have had quite a time.  They could only remove 96% of my cancer during my Sept. surgery.  So needed to follow with additional chemo.  I had one cycle in Nov. a couple days later I developed a vaginal fistula repairing it meant getting a colostomy.  So I needed to recover from that, learn how to deal with an ostomy. I resumed my chemo yesterday.  I had carbo and 1 hr. of taxol yesterday. Next fri, 1 hr. of taxol, following week 1 hr. of taxol then a week break and then start all over again for probable 5-6 cycles.   My tumor marker is at 18,4, which is great.  How are you.

Just a quick note to say hi!  Starting Caelyx Tues.  Wondering if you have begun your treatment and how you are holding up.  Trying to keep chin up, been on IV fluid at home for a week.  Gimme a shout, eh?

Hi Christina,
Just wondering how you are feeling and when you are starting your IP chemo?  I haven't seen you on the forum in awhile and wondered if you are okay.

Just a quick note to say hi!  Hey Christina.  I was admitted to the hosp. on Sun DX'd with peritonitis.  I did end up getting tapped, removing 3 L. ofbloody fluid.  Dr. put me on antibiotics 3 infusions and now oral Levaquin.  Also diuretics.  So hopefully I will now get well and keep well so surgery will go as scheduled.   I am home tonight, still feel a little sore, but much better and not running a temp.  I will be sending good thoughts to you all week, knowing that IP chemo is totally anihilating any and all cancer cells that may have got left behind so you my friend can put this beside you and live so beautiful.  We are so strong, and even stronger together:)
Love you Kerry

You're in my thoughts all the time.  The first message I sent you, I hadn't read your profile yet.  You seem very strong with a great sense of humor.  If you ever want to attend a Ovarian Cancer event when your feeling up to it let me know.  Sending prayers

I am home, not feeling too good.  24/7 oxygen, visiting nurse will drain my lung.  When's the party starting?  Every month chips away at my autonomy and independence.  Must adapt or ???  
Thanks for thinking of me,

Just a quick note to say hi!  Hey how did it go.  The port is in correct.  My IP port did not bother me.  My IV one did at times.  Seems that my ascites is not coming back very much, so hopefully wont have to be tapped again before surgery:)  Feeling well, working 10 hr. days, going to a concert tonight at the fair.  I will call this weekend.  I love the pic of you and the kids and Zoe is so cool.  Love, Kerry

Just a note. I haven't heard how your surgery went. Was it ok? I don't see that you've written in your journal. Perhaps I'm not looking in the right place? Hope you are doing well and that your beautiful family is supporting and helping you.  K

Hi again,
I prefer to PM because I don't have to keep shortening my sentences when I hit the dreaded number of letters.

Please ask anything you want, I'm glad to chat wit a fellow  OVCA fighter, and we both gain knowledge.

Hi Christina,
Don't say why am I telling you this, we have a common bond, and we all try to help each with our experience dealing with OVCA.
When I finished carbo/taxol I thought I was finished with treatment, after 3-4 months my oncologist called, my CA went up and he was concerned. We repeated it the next 2 months it rose steadily to 83, the CT scan showed lymph nodes enlarged again. Belly pains concerned him, he never mentioned ascites but I assume that was it.

Yes, I was platinum sensitive,  I had relapsed in 4 mos.

We started Topo. it  worked 10 mos. then my CA started climbing from 13 to now 50. He's anxious to restart chemo. My next scan is in Oct. but if the CA continues to rise, we won't wait. He's mentioned Avastin/Gemzar but his associate preferred Doxil for me.
next note....

Yes you will leave the house again. you are just frustrated right now. it will pass. while at work the other day, was answering phones, forgot where I worked. really couldn't think of where I was. Now i think thats bad!! just shrug it off. I'm learning to. I call it middle age senility. or as i say here comes the fog. it will lift eventually.
