I'm new to this site. In June this summer my mum was diagnosed with stage IIIC ovarian cancer. She's now had lots of chemo and a complete hysterectomy surgery. We've just got her pathology report and discovered she has carcinosarcoma (or ovarian MMT).
I immediately turned to google research. Big mistake. According to my google research it's very rare (1-2% of all ovarian tumours) and very aggressive and prognosis is very poor. My mum had her surgery about a month ago and now undergoing another round of chemo (she had four before the surgery). We think the cancer is all out of her following the surgery although having scared myself brainless with all my googling I realise that there are so many variations and meanings to that phrase. The only thing that sticks with me is how poor the prognosis is conveyed online. I haven't been able to speak to her doctors. I need someone to tell me that it isn't that bad for everyone. I need someone to tell me they've had it and are as good as gold now. I'm just terrified.
I was feeling so happy at her progress after her surgery and now having read her pathology report I just feel terrified and sick to my stomach. Every single cancer is a monstrous beast but this one just seems particularly cruel to me.
Would appreciate anyone's comments.
