Good News from ONC - It worked!!!!!

I'm so high on adrenaline I'm not able to sit down and don't know whether to start cleaning or baking or what...

My ONC Just called me FIVE DAYS AHEAD OF SCHEDULE... My post treatment CT results came in early and there was NO EVIDENCE OF DISEASE whatsoever!!!! I had a successful surgery on July 30 followed with six lots of paclitaxel/carboplatin, Avastin continuing. (Stage 4 OC)

Pre chemo I had a spot in the liver they were not sure about - I had an existing liver cyst and it was not clear whether the spot was pre-existing or cancer related.

It is all gone. GONE. Nothing abnormal going on in there.

I'm so happy I don't know what to do with myself. Nina XX

  • No worries, ask away :)

    MY OBGyn referred me to specialist after an abnormal ultrasound finding at the end of June. Had my appointment the first week in July 2014. Got the date for surgery already on this visit. Had a CT scan which showed bilateral large tumors. My markers were 1500. Had surgery on 30.7 bilateral s-o-ectomy and hysterectomy, r/o omentum and r/o a part of small intestine which was strangled by tumor. He was able to remove all visble tumor. Was discharged on day 4 post-op in good form.

  • Just left a comment and lost it!! Anyway. Wonderful news! Treat yourself to something you want but don't need. You deserve it! There are quite a few stage 4 survivors on here who have never recurred so there is always hope you can be one of them. :-). Live your life as if you will be but also remember to appreciate all the little things we all took for granted before diagnosis. ;-)

    Have a lovely day.

    Love M.B x
