I am in bits at the moment and don't know where to turn. My mum has been newly diagnosed with ovarian cancer but she is having a laparoscopy tomorrow to see what stage it is at. She has had no symptoms until she got shingles about a month ago and she had ascites. She had 5 and a half litres drained off. I am continuely crying and really dont know what will happen next. My Mum is my world. She is 69 and I am 43. I am married with a very supportive husband and a 9 year old son. I just need to chat to someone who knows about this as it is new to us all. My Dad died of a brain tumour 17 years ago and I am petrified for my mum and what she will have to go through in the next few months. It breaks my heart. Thank you for listening.
