I am noticeably more tired but my blood and urine levels are carefully monitored throughout this treatment. If I have something needing to be done I do it in the morning as by mid afternoon I am starting to droop. If it hasn't started to work by the end of the second round (end of January) I hope my oncologist will be able to come up with something else. He is very experienced so I am lucky.
Last summer I was on Paclitaxel and Carboplatin and those side effects were more difficult to control.
I will be interested to hear how you are making out.
I had 2 Nd infusion already this week is my avastin
i totally get the fatigue , this time it’s really quite significant
headaches is another issue
i had wkly taxol from May til October this year it brought my ca down but then my ca started going up
so I have the Caylex and avastin
my ct is next week the drs here go by ct imaging not ca.numbers
a week before I started this treatment which has been now going on 7 weeks I have developed a dry hacking relentless cough
so I think that’s why the ct scan
my ca is still going up apparently that’s how Caylex works it goes up before down for at least 3 infusions
i live in Ontario what part of Canada do you live?
i was dx in 2014 stage 3 c serous ovarian cancer
im going to a very good cancer hospital Princess Margeret Hospital Toronto Ontario
i would live to keep in touch seeing as we are both on similar treatment
Take care, Sally
im not sure if my coughing and sinus issue are part of the avastin side effects
i love that you can keep a sense of humour about it
