Signs of Recurrence?

Hi,
I was wondering if anybody could tell me a little bit more about the signs of a recurrence - are they the same as the original signs (bloating etc.)? A lot of people on this site seem to talk about paying attention to your body, but I guess I don't really know what to pay attention to.
Thank you, and all the best to all of you,
Heike

My wife was having dry coughing spells at first but then she began having a mucus discharge, which eventually was bloody. A chest xray and Cat Scan had shown a lesion inside her diaphragm. The diaphragm is a common site for ovarian metastatic recurrence.

I think the symptoms depend on the site of recurrence. What you can do is have anything unusual checked out as soon as you can, once you've noticed it.
