After 2 years of being clear of Ovarian Cancer I've just undergone major surgery to remove a small tumour spreading from my diaphram to my liver
My excellent surgeon has had the histology back today and I'm devastated to find it confirms that the tumour was cancerous. I feel utterly ravaged by the surgical procedure which began as a 2 hour op and became 5 hours. My post operative pain has been horrible and it's been a struggle to cope as I do not have a partner or children
I will be meeting with my oncologist soon but my surgeon believes chemo will be suggested. He also confirmed that in his opinion ALL the cancerous areas had been removed during surgery
This may upset some people but I do not want to go down the route of chemo yet again. If I had family support I might view the treatment differently but I do not feel I have the strength to go through the ordeal again. I want to try alternatives as the first round of chemo may have held back the return of the cancer but did not eradicate it.
I'm emotionally exhausted and feel the need to talk to others here as you are the only ones that understand what I'm going through
