On May 7, 2003 I was diagnosed with stage 1a borderline ovarian cancer. After a complete hysterectomy/staging procedure, my gyn. oncologist said I was cured and would be fine without further treatment -- just 6 month follow-up visits for the rest of my life. I would love to believe him, but having lost my husband to cancer less than 2 years ago, I find myself skeptical about being "cured" of cancer. Are there any stage 1a survivors out there who can provide some reassurance? Thank you!
