My mum is 58 and was diagnosed with stage 3/4 ovarian cancer, she has had a very bumpy ride of 3 lots of chemo, stents put into her kidneys and a fair few trips to the hospital where she couldn't eat/drink and was in a very bad way. She had a scan prior to her op which is tomorrow and they are so pleased with the response she has had. They are now calling her cancer stage 3 again. Her tumour has shrunk considerably and she is bad to eating normally again trying to gain some weight. Her weight went down to 7st 10 but she must be nearly up for 8.7- 9 stone again now.
Her operation is tomorrow and she is very scared but once it's over she is going to be pretty much at the end of her treatment. I know she has been saying that they put a catheter in before the operation and sometimes the one up the other side to? Mum was hoping they would just do it all when she is asleep in the theatre room.
We are all so so pleased how well she has responded when she was in the state she was, I never thought she would be at this point now just 3/4 months later. The treatment is so amazing they can do these days and the experts do seem to really know what they are doing
