We just got off the phone with Dr. West, the integrative oncologist, regarding whether or not to do further rounds of chemo.
Long story short, she is in agreement with Dr. Guntupalli. And she is happy he’s willing to do only two doses and lowering the dosage of the Taxol, as the Carboplatin is very effective for ovarian cancer generally, and apparently for me specifically. But Taxol is apparently the more toxic of the two. The point is to “sweep up” any remaining cancer cells before they start making any further trouble.
So I am good to go with that advice. Fourth round of chemo will be a week from Thursday then.
Sadly, my hair was just beginning to grow out again: almost 1/2″. So I’ll have to restart the hair growing process again after round 5. Maybe this week I’ll dye it purple. It will take it another three weeks or so to fall out again.
