Not sure what kind of help you are looking for. Originally diagnosed with IIIB low-grade serous carcinoma in 2011. Underwent surgery followed by chemo, taxol and carboplatin. In 2016, was diagnosed with recurrent cancer, stage 4. Was on Letrozole for just over 3.5 years then built up an immunity to the drug. Just started on Tamoxifen a couple of weeks ago. Follow up after 3 months to determine if Tamoxifen is keeping the tumours stable. Is this what you are looking for?0
I also was diagnosed with IIIb low grade OC in January 2016. I had 2 surgeries in Dec 2016 before the diagnose, total hysterectomy, all came out (tubes, ovaries) followed by a debulking surgery. At that time, they put me o Tamoxifen, tried Caelex (chemo) but I had an anaphylaxis reaction, so they kept me on tamoxifen for almost 3 years. The cancer came back , so in Aug 2019, I had a HIPEC surgery (heated intra-peritineal chemo) that lasted 7 hours. The tamoxifen was stopped.
When I recovered, I had 6 cycles (every 3 weeks) of Paxi/Carbo, ended Feb 2020. I started on Anastrozole after the chemo.
Following more tests, they started me on more chemo, same drugs, but I had an anaphalctoid reaction to carboplatin on the 2nd cycle, so that was stopped. ( last chemo was in Dec 2020). So they were very aggressive after the cancer came back, but because of my allergic reactions, I do not know what will come next. The last PET/CT shows the cancer is still there, I should find out more in April about what will come next.
I am back on Anastrozole now, hoping for the best!0
