I'm new to this group and to having just been diagnosed with stage 3 ovarian cancer. So far I've had to have 1 round of Paracentiessis to take 3 lbs of fluid out of my abdomen and looking at another tomorrow. I meet with the oncology gynecologist on Tuesday to discuss when to do surgery followed by chemo. The other train of thought it seems is to do a few rounds of chemo before surgery. What insight do you have on this? I would just like to get the surgery done so that I'm not in so much pain and stop the filling up of fluid. This all started 3 weeks ago.
