I was diagnosed with stage 4 peritoneal cancer June last year at 42 it had spread to my lungs and chest, I also had tumours laying on my liver & diaphragm. I had 6 rounds of carboplatin and taxol followed by what the surgeons called ultra radical surgery it involved a full hysterectomy, a liver resection, diaphramic stripping and the removal of nodules.in my chest, appendix, spleen and omentum. 3 weeks after surgery I commenced another 3 rounds of carbo and taxol and was introduced to Avastin. The last 3 chemo's were hard I think after such big surgery I struggled a bit, and had to take a little bit longer off work for each round, the team around me have been awesome and my oncologist has just been great. I had my scan last week and yesterday afternoon I was told it's gone all gone......I will remain on Avastin until Christmas after that I don't know. But today I can really look forward to some good times ahead especially with friends and family who have been so supportive and brilliant,starting with my wedding in November and I won't be a bald bride now!!
