I was diagnosed with an rare ovarian tumor back in

October 2013. I had to do 20 rounds of chrmo therapy

5 days straight and 2 weeks off. I did my last round the

January 6-10. I get my ct scan this Tuesday. I have been

keeping a positive attitude since all of this has occurred. 

I hope this forum is as supportive as I was told it to be.

Sounds like you had a rough chemo, 5 days in row and only 2 weeks off after that.....mine was 8 cycles of carbo-taxol, 4 before surgery and 4 after, every 3 weeks and it was  hard too. I'm glad to say that almost 2 years later, I am back to the new normal. Grateful to be alive, but a bit dinged and knocked around from the effects of the surgery and chemo.

Hope your scan is clear and that you will be dancing with NED soon (NED stands for no evidence of disease and we all want him for a dance partner).

You've come to the right place for support, understanding and empathy. Let us know how your scan turns out. and if you have any questions. There's always someone here to help.

All the best,

Congratulations on finishing chemo. Was it Topotecan?

I hope your CT scan comes back clear and you enjoy your remission for a long-long-long time.

I am praying that you get good results from your CT scan tomorrow.  As you no doubt have discovered, this journey is a rollercoaster of emotions and waiting for test results can be the hardest thing.  Please keep us posted!

Your chemo sounds really tough, how are you? This board really helped me when I was first diagnosed, the women here are the strongest, smartest bunch you will ever find.

I was diagnosed in June of 2010 and have been on chemo most of the time since and I am doing pretty well so even if your scan is not perfect there is still hope. You have not posted your results and I hope it is because you are out celebrating !

Oh I reread your post and see you just had your scan so you won't have the results yet ! Crossing my fingers and toes for you!
