It's been a long time since I posted. Things were going well for me (or so I thought). Finished Folfox on the 7th of Oct., got a clean bill of health on the 20th and so decided to go on the truck with my husband Bob (he's an OTR driver in the western states). Had a beautiful time until a week ago when I started having pain in my right side. I knew of an ovarian cyst on the left that was scheduled to come out on Dec. 3rd. I was told that it was nothing to worry about, all tests came back NED.
We barely made it to KS, never even went home, went straight to the ER, Dr's there were discussing emergency surgery, decided to wait until the next day. During Surgery they removed a tumor the size of a muskmellon (all cancer), they also gave me a complete hysterectomy.
The next day I was told that I had more than a week, but less than a year. (How's that for pinning them down?)
We are still reeling from everything, it happened so fast, I can't get my brain around it.
I talked to my previous Onc. then also got a 2nd opinion from a different Onc. Both were pretty well telling the same thing.
I'm home now, trying to sort this mess out.
I'm angry at how this cancer could grow so fast and undetected while a was on chemo, have totally lost faith in my old onc. even though the new guy told me that it was just "bad luck", nothing anybody did wrong.
My husband is very supportive, of course he is also very upset, he had a melt-down yesterday, it was so hard to watch.
Please give me some positive thoughts, maybe even some ideas on where to go from here, I'm totally devastated, don't know where to turn.
Thanks for listening to my ramblings, I'm looking forward to your letters, I've read so much good advice here.
