I need some place to talk. This has been a rough year. I have stage 3c ovarian cancer and I am 29 years old. Last July I was diagnosis and ended up having a full hysterectomy when my debulking surgery took place. I am on my 4th cycle of chemo Cysplatin via IP and Taxol via IV. I have 2 more cycles left. Some reason the process is getting harder to mentally take. I am getting scared of the cancer coming back also the fact that I can never have children now is finally hitting me. My Drs are all very optimistic about my treatment and feel I have been handling the process well. I have talked to them about how I feel but I figured I would come here to hear some advice on how to keep my chin up and fight the good fight, especially from some of the younger surviors. My local support group has been a help but the youngest person I have met is 49 years old.
Please tell me your advice or story to help out...
Thanks in advance
