I have recently been diagnosed with carcinoid cancer of the ovary. It was found unexpectedly while having a hysterectomy. It was totally removed and 32 biopsies were neggative. I feel fine and have no symptoms of anything wrong so I don't know what to expect of the scans. Had two scans this week, octreotide scan and CT scan. Presently awaiting results. Has anyone else had this? I'm a nurse and have never heard of it. My onocolgist says it is a much better prognosis than if it was a typical ovarian cancer, but at the same time he says I don't want to hear my name in the same sentence with the word cancer. So...I would like to be able to relate to someone else who is dealing with this. Thanks!
