Questions re Chemo -Germ Cell Ovarian Cancer

I had an emergency TAH a week ago. I had a large cyst rupture. They said the cyst was granulosa germ cell ovarian cancer. I do not know the staging.

However, the doctor (gynecological oncologist) said ultimately it was up to me to do chemo. He leaned towards doing it since the cyst ruptured. I have not had my first appointment with him - just saw him a few times in the hospital.

I know I will learn more once I go to that appointment, but it is at least a week away.

Can anyone tell me what chemo will be like? How often does it happen? And how soon will it start? Personally, if I'm going to do it, I would just like to get started as soon as possible and get it over with so I can find my new normal as soon as possible.

I guess I'm still just a bit freaked out and want to make sure others have gone through this and it was ok...

Hi (((Geneseo)))
I'm sorry you face further treatment but it is good you're begin cared for by a gyn/onc. As you've noted you'll know much more once you have that first appointment;may it be a very productive one.
There are many women here who have gone through chemo and I know they'll come along soon to reply to some of your queries.
