Dear sweet community at Health Unlocked,
My name is Delia, I'm 24, and almost a month ago my mom, 66, was diagnosed with stage 3 PPC. She's currently at MD Anderson in Houston, being treated by an incredible gyn-oncology team. They've told her the survival rate is 70% and things we've read that told us 30% are sourcing outdated research. Anyway, she's had a few hiccups along the way, which included an emergency colostomy last week as the peritoneal tumor was pressing on her colon and causing a blockage.
I'm writing because while searching for positive & hopeful information from survivors, I saw several posts here from 3 years ago where lots of PPC survivors were discussing their treatment. I'd love to hear from any PPC survivors out there, and if you have any hopeful words or tips to pass on to me and my mom, I would really appreciate it.
She's the only one I have & I love her so much, so any information would be appreciated.
