I found this site accidently & so glad I did. My daughter was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, papillary serous adenocarcinoma, stage 2C on May 27,2012. Everything happened so fast: first abdominal pain, bloating. Went to ER then ultra sound that showed a mass on her left overly. This was followed by surgical debunking, total hyst,removal of overies & fallopian tubes. The tumor migrated to right Fallopian tube.
Three weeks later she started her chemo, IP cisplatinum & taxol. Had a bad reaction immediately with Taxol, so then went to 2nd line doxitxol.
Ca125 went from 650 to 39 post surgery. Following cycle 4, Ca 125 went from 39 to 60. Stopped chemo & ordered MRI----now waiting for results.
I am very worried about this but staying positive for her. She is 45, a grandmother to 3 wonderful grand kids (my great grand kids).
She is an RN & this cancer is her worse fear. Her gyn/onc has been great--does not play any "what if's" tells it like it is but with encouragement.
II would like to hear more survivor stories. Thank you all for all the support you give to each other. I have revered her to this site as well.
