    Anyone been on Doxil? Was it combined with other drugs?

    I am having my 2nd reoccurrence with 2 pulmonary nodules and an area under my diaphragm, all on the left. Last year I had Carboplatin and Gemzar for an enlarged lymph node under my left diaphragm which apparently is not fixed. My Oncologist believes we will try Doxil. I am also already on Zejula. I am platinum resistant. I will be seeing my Gynecological Oncology Surgeon soon to investigate other possible interventions like surgury/radiation. Any feedback on side effects, drugs it was combined with and how well it worked for you
    is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

      I received Doxil combined with Gemzar and Navelbine. However, this was the6th, 7th and 8th drugs in 4 months, so I was pretty much whacked by that point. The worst would be hand and foot syndrome - which might be moderated by keeping hands and feet cold during and after infusion.

      I was on Doxil and Carboplatin for recurrent ovarian cancer. It was fine. I did experience some skin issues and mouth sores from the Doxil but nothing I couldn't handle. I was vigilant about avoiding the sun and tight clothing (I'd been well-warned) and avoided most of the worst side effects I read about.
