Hello all, this is Loeyann again I want to thank allof you who replied to my request for some advice, I cannot believe how wonderful you all seem! My sister is 36 years old, she has had problems with that endromitrious (however you spell it) and the doctor that did surgery on her to remove it about 7 months ago some how "missed" this cancer. What I don't get is how can Ovarian Cancer come on so aggresive in such a short period of time? I think he did not do his job as far as I am concerned, I cannot change the outcome now, but I cannot help but feel angry at him. She goes in for "ports" on the 12th of this month and then she starts her chemo around the 23rd. She said she will go on a Monday somehow get chemo in the port around her shoulder? and then the next day get it in her belly, then she will go home on Wednesday return back the following week just get it in her belly, then have two seeks off then the whole thing starts again for about six months.I don't know what drugs yet however she said they did give her a script for alot of anti nausea meds. She is also going to be on Procrit too. I want to be able to go with her but my work schedule is tough, her husband said he will go to the first treatment with her, how mighty fine is that... that is another story all together.. I don't want her to be alone.. I am going to try to re-arrange my schedule to see if I can go with her. My mom who is 68 and handicapped and well who was working full time up until this week decided to retire to help her as well, the thing of it is my mom can't really afford to do that both her and my dad are not in good shape either they have alot of medicine that they are on that the insurance doesn't cover. So it sure will be a trying time. I don't want to boere you with the details, As soon as I learn more about what types of drugs she will be on you will be hearing from me, I know I will have more questions! But so far so good, I am doing her hair for her this week, she loves that!! So have a nice Easter Holiday each one of you and may God bless you! I know he has blessed me because he sent me to you!!
