Hello Everyone, I haven't posted for a while as I haven't had anything to report, but I do read most posts on here, and am really sad that we have lost two valuable members of this forum over the Christmas period.
I've always felt a bit like I shouldn't be a part of this group as my disease was borderline, and not full blown OC, but I've always stayed in touch because I can write down on here what I'm really feeling, whereas in the real world as far as my family are concerned, everything is fine and dandy. Anyway, here goes.....my story so far, hope I don't bore some of you as I have told some of you already:
Diagnosed 3a borderline November 2012, full debulking including omentum, appendix, cervix and part of bowel. Excellent recovery and all was well until a year later. I then started experiencing bowel problems and fluctuating CA125. I've been given medication for IBS. My last scan was done in October where a very slight change was noted on my diaghrafam. I'm due another scan in February.
In the meantime I'm feeling absolutely fine in myself but I have been experiencing shoulder pain which is relieved when I empty my bowels. I've had this before and have put it down to IBS but this morning the pain in my shoulder was really bad when I emptied my bowels. Sorry if this is TMI.
On top of this I keep getting these red spots on my face across my cheeks. I know rashes have been mentioned recently so I'm getting a little concerned. The spots are there one day and gone the next, so is there a connection or am I being paranoid.
