I feel very alone as I've never met anyone with advanced OC. I am having a debulking radical hysterectomy on June 10th. My para-aortic lymph nodes are involved. I am a young and active (otherwise extremely healthy!) 57 year old and still can't believe I have this disease. The consultant hasn't staged my cancer yet but it's going to be either high 3's or 4. As it's also in my colon, he's advised me to have a stoma for the best possible outcome. I will also have chemo. He says he has to tell me that I may only have 3 - 5 years.
I would feel so comforted to chat online to any ladies who've had a similar diagnosis.
