      I did avastin for recurrence for ovarian cancer. It worked for 2 months and then stopped. It didn't work for me but it might work for you. Good luck and god bless

      I have recurrence of OVC, and I am getting carbon and Avastin. I go for my second infusion tomorrow (today, really. It is after midnight. I cannot sleep.)

      My doc wanted to use Avastin last time, but insurance wouldn't pay. Now they will. I only hope it works. First CA 125 came back lower today, so here's hoping!

      I had 13 rounds of avastin for reoccurring ovc. It allowed my white counts to build from prior treatments and maintained the growth or progression for almost nine months. (I was clear of disease for only five months after my initial diagnosis and treatment.)

      The only side effects I experienced were increased blood pressure and fatigue. The CA 125 continued to increase while on avast in, however, it allowed my body to strengthen. I am now taking doxil. Best of luck!
