My mom has Stage IV Breast Cancer and is about to begin treatment on DOXIL. My mom has been treated with Hormone therapy for 4 years and this is her 2nd traditional infusion chemo treatment. She just completed Navelbine treatment and her CA125 was rising. The doctor wants to now try DOXIL. I am really intesterested in hearing exactly what supplements you took and how (doses etc). I know you mentioned Whey protein, Quercitin with Bromelain, Turmeric, Fish Oil and Milk Thistle. How much, what form, when etc? would be great.
Please let me know.Maria

Hi All - I am Nancy and I was found to have Ovarian Cancer stage3c. I had a hysterdectomy back in July 07 and start chemo in Sept 07 with IP cisplatin and IV taxol. Got to day 8 of first cycle and had kidney failure and landed in hospital for hydration for 12 days. Cisplatin caused Kidney failure. Returned to Chemo getting carbonplatin IP and Taxol IV for 7 cycles. I ended on Jan. 08. I was in remission for awhile, then my CA 125 count went up. Oct it was up to 85 and Ct scan was done and showed a 4mm tumor in my gut. Doc tried hormone therphy for four weeks, with Femara, which I am taking any how for prevention of recurrence of Breast cancer. I had stage 0 and contained in milk duct. Had lumpectomy in Feb, 08 and radiation for 6 weeks. I am OK with that for now. Fermara has new studies out that it also works in preventing Ovarian cancer. So my Doc tried it.
Femara did not work for the new tumor and CA 125 is up now to 170 and I am starting Doxil on Wednesday Dec 10 for treatment of this. I have been reading alot and reading all the blogs everywhere and thought I would join in and share my story. I am willing to hear any thing or suggestions about reactions to Doxil and preventions. I will pray for ALL out there going through ANY sort of Cancer I know the feelings. God be with ALL of US and I will be around and update you on my treatment. I go to Sloan Kettering in Commack NY and its a wonderful place and great docs there. Highly recommended. One in NYC is great too.
Take care All. love Nancy
