This combination is new to me and as I understand it, Caelyx is a 'slow release' drug which is good for recurrent Ovarian Cancer, hence fewer chemo sessions. Has anyone else had this combo please - and would discuss how you felt on the drugs - yes, I know everyone is different, but it'd be handy to talk to anyone though. Cheers Joan.

was subsequently diagnosed with recurrent ovarian cancer after having PETSCAN and blood tests etc, just shy of 8 yrs from my 1st surgery. There were 3 nodes packed with OC cells and if I had waited till I had pain, two of them would have attached themselves onto the bowel. One was on the pelvis. Surgery was back on 8th February which has healed nicely. I took the iniative to investigate getting a port in as having blood tests, getting a canula in me, took just so long. Never having a port, or knowing much about them, I didn't expect to be as sore or tender as I have been. I reckon it's worse than what the main surgery was. I really am trying to not do much with the arm lifting heavy things etc etc. Hubby has been great again doing the housework. I'll be on carbo/caelyx and I wonder if anyone has been on that combination and would like to discuss about their experience with it pls? I start this Thursday 10th March. Thank. Joan.
