My name is Carol and I live in Edmonton Ab. After being diagnosed with ovarian cancer in May 2019 I have since completed 9 chemo cycles. My ca 125 levels have steadily decreased from 900 to 120. Recent ct shows nothing has spread but my dr says the surgeons decided no surgery - ever - for me as it would be risky?? He just sent me home and said every 3 mnths they will do ct again and if levels start going up again then more chemo? I don't understand why no surgery as I read that it is standard in treatment? My liver, bladder lungs etc are fine and I am/was a healthy 62 yr old? I feel like he just gave up and sent me home to wait it out. Does anyone understand this kind of treatment?
Thank you all for being here and hope you all have a very happy thanksgiving!
