My name is Claudia - I live both on Vancouver Island BC and in San Francisco. I was diagnosed with stage 1A ovarian CA in 2018 - had surgery, no chemo and was fine for 2 years. In June 2020 I had a small recurrence - had surgery again and 1 day of chemo before being placed on a PARP inhibitor. I have a BRCA mutation which makes PARP medications more lethal against cancer cells.
I have had numerous side effects from the PARP medication - I take Zejula - and wanted to connect with other women to see what their experiences might be on PARP.
