Hello, this is my first post. I hope you don't mind if I summarise my cancer history, starting with breast cancer (lumpectomy + radiotherapy) in 1985, mastectomy in 2006, and removal of a chest nodule in 2009.
Then the real whammy: diagnosis of ovarian (or peritoneal?) cancer in July 2013. No surgery possible because disease seeded throughout abdomen, but 18 weeks of Carboplatin, followed by approx. a year of "remission". Recurrence in April this year, followed by another 18 weeks of Carboplatin, which I have just finished.
Now chewing my nails while I wait for CT scan next Monday! Feeling tired and glum as I realise there is no cure - just whatever chemotherapy can offer until it no longer works. . . scary. Sorry to start on a downbeat note - I do have better days when I feel much more vibrant and cheerful! Greetings to all fellow travellers!
