I was very disappointed to hear the FDAs finding on the use of Avastin for OC. I have been on AVASTIN for 4 months and had a 5000 drop in my CA125. Obviously it is doing somethng?!?!
They say that it shrinks tumors but does not increase time of life. I don't get that. The tumors affecting organs is what most OC patients die of. Stop the tumor growth...it will not affect the organs.
They also say it only added about 14 months of life. I will take it!
It is going to be interesting tomorrow when I see my oncologist to see if this means I cannot get a drug that is helping me. Now that would stink!!
