Unfortunately the Olaparib has stopped working and my tumour is growing once again. More chemo on tap for me with Carboplatin and a new one for me Doxorubicin. Has anyone has this drug and if so how well was it tolerated?

    Sorry to hear that @Teddybear - sending you good thoughts and hoping anyone with experience on this drug will post
  • @Flowergirl I had this drug for 3 treatments my last one in May of this year.  This was by far the best one for me some nausea, sore throat and sore skin and of course fatigue, hot flashes very intense for about two weeks. Then it starts to get better.  Previous to this drug I had two other drugs and were awful.  I am now in remission and going for my 6 month checkup next week.  This journey for me started last December with stage 3C. I was told to think of this as a chronic disease and could possibly come back. I hope not.  Stay strong! Keep fighting.
