I dont post alot but I do visit every few days. You ladies have been so instrumental in my journey with ovarian cancer. I have drawn so much strength and hope from this place.

It has been a year since I was diagnosed. I finished my chemo in March. It has been a roller coaster for me. Very emotional for me as this was my second cancer diagnosis. I took it so much more personally this time around. I'm coming up on some important checkups. My 6 month checkup for the ovarian cancer and my annual checkup for the colon cancer. I get so nervous before checkups. Wish I wasn't doing them right before checkups.

Thank you so much for the encouragement. And I want to give some back and encourage all those diagnosed recently to hang in there. Life does go on. You find a new kind of normal. Much love to everyone here.

I say... go out and celebrate! I am a two time survivor also, Thyroid and Ovarian. With all we go through, I don't think the pre-appt anxiety ever gets easier.

I am so happy that you are NED (no evidence of disease) and I am praying that you get the "thumbs up" from both of your upcoming check-ups. I myself have been NED for just over two years and I just had my three month CA 125 blood test last week and will have my six month checkup with my gyn-onc surgeon this Friday. As I await my CA 125 results, I definitely agree that the pre-appointment anxiety hasn't gotten much better for me (yet!).

So glad you have passed that one-year mark! I know, it can be very emotionally draining when you are waiting for answers. I am waiting for a CA125 report, hoping it is low regardless of a few 'aches and pains'. I was diagnosed in 2000, had a recurrance in 2006. I'm overdue for a CT scan, and will try to get that after my husband has his knee replacement surgery.

Thank you for your encouragement. Sending thoughts and prayers to you. Please let us know, okay?

Monika: I did not realize you were diagnosed om 2000. I like to here these stories because I can hope. What stage and type were you diagnosed with?
