I haven't posted in quite a long time but finished second line chemo (carboplatin) for recurrence diagnosed at end of July (first time diagnosed in October 2012). CT scan followed with my results on Monday. Was relieved to hear good news, no evidence of any cancer left and CA125 at 7 (was 195 in July)!
Back to work in January and some kind of normality, just need to get my head round not worrying about another recurrence! My oncologist was great and said still plan for next year and the year after and each day worrying is a day wasted which is so true I know but easier said than done. They have a psychologist in the team at the hospital especially for Gynae cancers so I think I'll make the most of what's offered and have a couple of sessions with her as it can't do any harm. Any coping strategies from the girls out there welcomed as first time I had complete hysterectomy then followed by 6 sessions of back up chemo just to mop up any cells remaining and I was sure it was all over and done with so this time has been a bigger shock and more to take in as I'll probably face another recurrence at some completely unknown time!
Anyway onwards and upwards and wishing you all a lovely Christmas and a positive new year - here's to 2016 being a better year for us all!
Lots of love
