Hi, I was just dx with a recurrance of br ca with peritoneal involvement (stage 4). I was shocked because my last mammo was normal but doc said when it re appears, it's still considered breast ca. I was very bummed!! I had my ovaries removed which were clear of ca as well as my appendix (healthy but removed to allow for abdominal space)and a layer of obendum (sp ?) near my bowel where the surgeon removed a "string of small tumors" that were responsible for a partial bowel obstruction I had been experiencing since August 09. I'm glad that the mystery was solved because the docs couldn't figure it out. I was having abdominal pain for nearly 2 months after eating, with nausea, constipation & diahreah----uggg, however, I am now worried about the outcome. In about three weeks, I'll have a chemo port put in and start gemstar. Has anyone had a similar experience? Also, what is gemstar like? I had adriamiacin/cytoxin and taxotere the first time (nearly 8 years ago and was cancer free until this past summer)and did ok. Hoping to hear some encouraging news. Thank you!!
