    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    I have been on some kind of chemotherapy since I was diagnosed 18 months ago. It's been an up and down journey. With debulking surgery and 22 chemo cycles with 5 different drugs, including 2 clinical trials. Just had my 3rd doxil today and thankfully my CA 125 is lower than last month. I have some side effects but have been able to manage them with the help of my amazing ontology team and the love and support of my family and friends.

    Easy to Do: Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Neutral/NA
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Disagree
