My Mum is currently in a dilemma regarding possible surgery to remove her one remaining ovary as they have said it will almost certainly involved removing part of the bowel. This would involve a stoma (temporary or permanent) which is making her not want the surgery. The surgeon said surgery would give her about another 12 months or more. Her ovarian cancer had spread but the chemo has been very effective so she is generally doing well. She feels quite certain she isn't going to die any time soon and thinks she will be fine with just the chemo.
Does anyone have any experience of this.???
It is very difficult to find anyone to contact and I feel with are met with a wall of silence everywhere we turn. No support groups locally either.
