This is my first post but I have been here almost every day reading the board since February 2010. I find this to be the most caring and informative board I have visited. In February, I had surgery for ovarian cancer. I have serous papillary ovarian adenocarcinoma stage 3c. I thought I was handling everything well by myself with only the support of my family but I find I am in need of friends that have a better understanding of what I am going through.
Today I am a quite stressed. I had my third chemo treatment of Carboplatin and Taxol. I was told that my white blood cells were low so I have to go in tomorrow to get a shot. What is stressing me is I was told the results of the biopsy that was done on my breast last week. The results were I have invasive ductal adenocarcinoma in my right breast, which is nottingham histologic grade of 2. I will meet the breast surgeon on the 25th but I am told surgery cannot take place until after the ovarian cancer chemo because of the concern of free radical cancer cells caused by ovarian cancer. The knowledge of have two separate primary cancers is a bit overwhelming.
I just wanted to introduce myself and hope to be welcomed into the group.
