I was diagnosed with uterine cancer at age 22. I had my uterus removed with no other followup treatment and no reoccurance.. I was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 32. I had chemo and have never had a reoccurance. My daughter was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 32. She had a year of chemo. She passed away at age 34. The loss of my daughter is the worst thing I have ever experienced... We were both tested for genetic mutations and both of us were positive for BRACA1 mutation. I have had my breast and ovaries removed. Now I am 56 and have stage 4 ovarian cancer. My CA125 came down to 14.The cancer has spread to my bladder and lymphatic system. I really don't understand how I can have OC when my ovaries were removed 4 years ago for preventative measure. My CA125 was over 1200. I had 6 treatments of Carbo/Taxol chemo. My CA125 came down to 14.The cancer has spread to my bladder and lymphatic system. Now, after a 4 month break from chemo my CA125 is back up again. My Urologist removed 3 tumors from my bladder and saw a mass on my kidney that has to be biopsied next week. I have been having trouble with my kidneys for about a year now. I have all kinds of lower abdominal and pelvic pain. The chemo that I get next is Doxil. The oncologist wants me to have a port implanted for my chemo and bloodwork because my veins are almost useless. I stay weak most of the time. Probably because I am a nervous eater my weight keeps going up. Is there anyone on this site that has had or have a similar story?
