Thanks Bonnie and Pamela for your input. Guess I should have been more specific, so I'm putting this out again. I was dx in January with Stage IC OVCA and had 6 rounds of carbo/taxol ending June 1st. I started bleeding a bit around 6 weeks after my surgery. My oncologist has known about it since March, but was puzzled, just taking a wait and see approach. But when it hadn't stopped and in fact had gotten heavier (need to change pads every 2-3 hours) by the beginning of August, he now wants to investigate. I'm sitting here drinking my bowel prep for an evaluation under anesthesia tomorrow morning. His theories are: tissue damage leftover from the hysterectomy; more cancer; or, remotely, leftover endometriosis that didn't quite get removed and may have been stimulated by the 3 months of estrogen I was on post-surgery.
Anybody ever hear of this? Of course I'm fearing the worst, but hoping for the best.
Bonnie, I hope things are going well with your new treatment.
