New Caregiver to my mother

My name is Tenzin, and my mother has just been diagnosed with OvC Stage 3C. She's had the tumor debulking surgery and Chemo starts next week. My father is infirm with diabetes and arthritis, so I'm now the primary caregiver for both parents. If this isn't an argument to avoid having only one child I don't know what is!

Anyway, I've just joined this group, and I hope to see it become more active soon. I need all the help I can get!

Peace, and may all be auspicious,
Tenzin

Dear Tenzin
I wish you all strength you need! But how wonderful that you'll be your mother's caregiver. Time during chemo will be very hard for you and your mother - but it will be allright.
I had myself ovc and I am doing well - so far. Never give up hope - everything is possible.
Please do write me sometime about everything - and how things are going.
All the best - Ingrid

Dear Elena, sometimes it can get a little slow on the chat boards.  I clicked on Ingrid's name and it shows me that the last time she visited the site was in 2008.  

Are you a ovarian cancer warrior or a caregiver.  Both are welcome!  I am a visitor from the Uterine chat board.  The gynecologic cancer folks visit the other 'below the belt' cancer threads to lend and ear if they can.  It is always nice to find others who have the same fights - it lets you know you are not alone.

Tenzin, its an old post i know but i want to know how are you and mom doing.my mother had been diagnosed with ovarian ca back in 2011 and ever since on chemotherapy.in 2017 her therapy was stopped owing to complications. She has been a refractory case.her stage at diagnosis was 3c. I feel so weak at times thinking what would i do without my mom.
