I am a 70 year old, went in to the hospital on Nov. 5 as I was having a hard time breathing and pain in my left side, found clots in my lungs, did blood work and found cancer when they did CA-125 test. Did cat scan of the pelvic area, at first diagnose as ovarian cancer. Went to the Seattle Cancer Center and was diagnosed with PPC, did a bipsy on Nov. 22 at the University of Washington Medical Center. I live in Ellensburg, Wa so I am going to the North Star Lodge Cancer Center in Yakima, my appt is this friday, Dec.9, will tell me when chemo starts, 9 weeks of chemo, then surgery to remove all reproductive organs then back to more chemo, hope this old body can take all this.
