Hi my sister was diagnosed with stage 3C OC in August at age 40. The cancer has spread to her upper GI lymph nodes which is apparently quite unusual and because it is surrounding all the major blood vessels and veins they have said it is inoperable. She has had 6 rounds of chemo which has shrunk the tumor in her abdomen from 17cm to 11cm but it has not reduced the tumors around her upper GI lymph nodes. The have talked to us about having the tumor in her abdomen removed to relieve symptoms though as they cannot remove all the cancer they have said it is unlikely to prolong her life. We are waiting for a second opinion at the moment. Has anyone else had experience of this type of spread and are there any other treatments we could look at. Thank you for any advise.
