I was first diagnosed in Feb 2007. I’ve had chemotherapy and a hysterectomy. I am now on my sixth recurrence during that time (2007/2009/2011/2013/2014 & 2015.) I am currently on Taxol weekly. How is it I’m responding so well?
Many women survive for many years with ovarian cancer, which every now and again recurs and is re-treated.
The pattern tends to be recurrence, treatment, period and remission and good quality of life followed by recurrence and further treatment etc.
I don't know the record for this type of pattern but I do know that we are all individuals, with different types of cancer and different responses to treatment. It is very hard to predict how well a person will do as there are always exceptions to the rule.
