    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Maintenance or consolidation chemotherapy): Began maintenance Avastin. The only problems I continue to have are recurrent UTIs. We don't know if this is a side effect or some other issue. Will possibly referred to a Urologist.

      Keep the faith Txlady! I, too, have recurring UTIs. After almost a year, I saw a Urologist. She and my Oncologist Nurse Practitioner put me on a daily dose, actually twice daily dose of Ceflixin and this has done the truck. I've used it for 2 years now and have not had aUTI since. Lots of water is the trick too! Good luck and God Bless you!

    Oh No (Legionella Pneumonia): After 5 cycles of chemo, I contracted Legionella Pneumonia (legionaires disease). The doctor thought I got it due to my compromised immune system. It is not passed human to human - you get it from contaminated droplets of water from hvac units or misters/sprayers. Since I only had one scheduled cycle of chemo left and my CA125 was normal the doctor decided to skip the last cycle and start maintenance therapy, so I began maintenance with Avastin

    Oh No (Cancer is back/Recurred ): In July, 2018 CT showed pulmonary nodule consistent with platinum sensitive recurrence. I had a small nodule (about the size of the tip of my little finger) on my diaphragm. Since my CA125 had doubled the last 2 checks, my doctor felt certain this was a recurrence and I needed more chemo.

    Celebration (Remission): In March, 2018 I was declared NED (no evidence of disease). Looks like treatment was successful.

    Oh No (broken arm): On my first outing after my surgery (other than doctor visits) I fell and broke my arm. As if cancer is not enough!
