Ovarian Cancer Diagnosis

I really appreciate this website and forum. I was diagnosed with OVCA IIIc and would have given up hope if I hadn't read what other brave women have gone through. I had a TAH with debulking and lost my nearest lymph nodes June 27th. I've been home since June 30th (my wedding anniversary!!) and feel great. I will probably start chemo in 2 weeks and this site has helped me to prepare. Thanks again

Welcome to the club, Brighton, even though it's a club all of us would prefer not to join!!! On the other hand, what would we do without each other to vent with, learn from, and get through this with. You hang in there. We'll be here!!!

Welcome, although we all wish you didn't need our help. You will find that chemo is do-able and that we can help you through it. Take it easy until then and let yourself heal. Ask any and all questions you would like to and we'll help. Karenann is a five year survivor with no recurrence; I have had a couple recurrences but am just over 5 years out and still going strong. Others here are survivors of varying length and we understand a lot of things. We're here for you.

Hi Brighton,

Glad you found your way to HysterSisters - a tremendous resource and support system for those of us with ovca. You also might want to connect with the American Cancer Society. They're available to take your call 24/7, 365 days a year and they are fabulous. Ask about their Look Good Feel Better program. And no, you won't be put on a mailing list and deluged with requests for support.

Starting chemo is one of the hardest parts of this journey. It was really helpful to talk to someone who'd been through it. ACS can probably connect you with someone in your area.

As you already know, this site is also available 24/7! And is visited by an incredibly knowledgeable and supportive group of women. You've come to the right place!

Very best wishes to you. You're going to meet some great people over the next few months and one day - not too far in the future - what you're going through now will be a distant memory.

Just wanted to say hi and welcome.
You have come to a great place.
Hope you stay in touch as chemo begins because there is nothing like a been there, done that friend. And there are lots of us here.
My medical oncologist told me before chemo started that my anticipation of it would be far worse than the reality.
And for me his words rang true.
What is your treatment plan?

I meet with the oncologist with my HMO July 18th. The gyn oncologist that did the surgery recommended 6 sessions of interperitoneal infusions, so I imagine they will follow her recommendations. I will know more after my appointment
