Diagnosed with ovarian cancer, tumors in pelvis, blood in stools, urine. Spread to kidney?

Hi. My mum has clear cell ovarian cancer , she was diagnosed two years ago. She had a hysterectomy and went on taxol/ carbo for 6 cycles. NED for 12 months then recurrence. Started another 6 cycles of same chemo however recent CT show two small tumors in pelvic area, also her ca125 jumped from 85 - 600. She is currently on Avastin every 3 weeks ( started 7 weeks ago). My concern is she has blood +2 (?) in her urine along with white cells, also noticed blood in stools last 3 days. Does this suggest that the cancer has spread to her kidneys / bowel?. Her CT scan showed inflamation in 3 lymph nodes in pelvis but nothing else. Is it possible it could of spread so quickly?. Many thanks

Hi Hinton, it is possible for tumour to spread to bladder and colorectal area and cause bleeding. But it could be related to some infection and avastin induced bleeding. But blood with white cells in urine is most likely a infection, so visit your chemo doctor for antibiotics. Take care.
