It would have helped if you had told me about the stage of your cancer in 2010 at initial diagnosis. Ovarian cancer
is a bad disease and is known to recur. The good thing is that you have had an almost 3 year of disease-free interval which tells me that your cancer was responsive to the chemotherapy
(this is called platinum sensitive disease, platinum being the active ingredient of the chemotherapy) and has a much better prognosis than platinum-resistant disease. Hence you should immediately start on the same chemotherapy as before without delay (Carboplatin
). Any delay is going to allow your tumor to grow and spread to other parts. Biopsy
is a simple procedure and can be done at any cancer hospital as an OPD or daycare procedure. So that is no reason to delay your treatment. I dont think it is anybody's fault, just the nature of this cancer and its tendency to recur. You should start chemotherapy immediately and if after chemotherapy there is a residual lesion that can be surgically removed, then you should undergo subsequent surgery as well.
