Results back on Wednesday 30th

Hi All,

Due to recurring abdominal and back pain in the past few months I had mri/bloods/contrast scan in the past few weeks. Last year I had a reoccurrance 4 years after first chemo and diagnosis, I have Stage 4 metastatic OC. I am very positive and usually very calm on result days but because a scan on 28th Jan had shown 2 nodules which were static at the time in my abdomen its a worrying time as life is pretty good for me. My markers have dropped from the 1000 since chemo last year (Caelex) to 100+ and im working partime so it all good but im experiencing pain on my right side and its worrying. Im a little anxious for Wed so can you all cross everything for me please!! Thank you 😊

Yes have a fight on my hands with VHI too as they only recognise the treatment for Lung and Brain Cancer and not for Ovarian. When I have my facts together and a reply from them in writing, I shall be waging war, Well this type of radiotherapy is a thing of the future for Ovarian Cancer and Laya and Irish Life have a code on their system but not so VHI our leading health insurance company. It says on my policy radiotherapy fully covered so cant see the problem

Hope all went well on Wednesday. 🙏🏻

I think you are all amazing women and also being able to work part time. I had to take 6 months sick leave in January as I worked in a school so chemo and germs don’t go together. Have to go see my boss today as they are filling posts for sept. Seeing as my chemo goes till end of July I don’t think I’d be ready. I think I went back to soon last year. Had finished chemo yesterday a year ago and started new job end August. Brain was still mush. And 7 months later I had a reoccurrence. My gut tell me to take it easy after these 6 cycles. And go back in new year. But I really would like to keep my job. Any advice.

Toni16 I hear you loud and clear its tricky and its all about life balance. I too work in schools and first time I was diagnosed 5 years ago I was so ill I couldnt work for 15 months! I had major surgery (abdomectomy and secondary in my lung too so had to have a pleuradixis). Finished the Avastin in the April that year and didnt return to school until that Sept. I agreed to jobshare..2 days one week and 3 days the next and it worked very well. If I felt unwell id not come in but my colleague was very accomodating. February last year 2017 I had a reoccurrance and was on Chemo (Caelex) I didnt lose my hair but it was rough I was quite ill so I went with my gut and told them id be out until that Sept I worked up until March..I was fine once off the Caelex and now on a maintenance again but life is good I feel well except for certain side effects so Toni16 my advice would be go with your gut...tell the school immediately if youre not up to it and dont ever put anything or anyone else before your LIFE and your HEALTH. Life balamce is key..jobs come and go but if youre up to work keep your hand in because people who work even a little bit feel a great sense of normality and we need a dose of that to stay positive. Mind yourself xxxx

Well spoke to my employers today. I’m not really any the wiser. I was hoping for another 3 months sick leave after chemo finished at end July (as I reckon medmark won’t pass me for going back that soon) but I think they have to offer me job first as I was on 1 year fixed contract. I need to talk to DES on Tuesday and see where I stand. All a bit head wrecking. But main think is to look after myself. Just spent day and evening with all my school colleagues at last day bash ( soberest one there) but mJea me miss it more. Decisions Decisions. Sorry I hope I don’t sound like a moan. It just been a hell of a year and always wonder will life ever be normal again.

You will get back to a normal life Toni but always remember when you are diagnosed your life changes from that moment and it will never be the same. but its your life and positive thinking goes a long way...try not to stress put out good vibes and everything will work out as it shoud. Stress is not good and worry wont solve it so relax and be good to yourself the rest will work out xx
