Hello , after reading your posts I've gathered bits of info along the way but thought I'd take the time to join in ! I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer Jan 2015 which had spread to my lymph nodes in my groin and peritunian,making it stage 4 ! I'm 45 and have a lovely husband and two now grown up children 18 (Beth ) and 20 ( jacob) . My 6 cycles of carbo/ taxol with debunking half way through all went to plan and was told I was in remission , at cycle 4 I started with Avastin (18 cycles )which where given every three weeks, after the chemo around Aug 2015 I started with really bad back hip groin pain on the right side , thought it was to do with scar tissue where I'd had a biopsy on my groin , I suffered so badly with this till April , after seeing neuro surgeons rhumotologist the gp and telling my oncologist I finally was referred to a orthopaedic who after prodding my hip and my nearly hitting the roof in pain said I had a condition called bursitis ( inflammation of fluid round the hip) he gave me a cortezone injection there and then and within 72 hours I couldn't believe the difference ! All this time I'd suffered and he knew instantly ! I carried on with the Avastin till may 12 th 2016 but just knew deep down I still didn't feel right , I even said to the girls in the chemo ward I don't think it ll be the last you see of me on that last day . On the 13 th may ( Friday !!!) the very next day I went for a meeting with the oncologist about my latest scans to be told it had returned in my lymph nodes in my stomach ! Devestated !! And I was to start chemo the following wed ! So I did this time instead of once every three weeks it was three weeks of chemo and one off ! I had cycle 1 ok and cycle two wasn't so good I had a bad reaction to the carbo couldn't breathe and went the brightest red ever in my my face and neck ! Everything got abandoned. So the next one was given really over a longer period , but still had a reaction even though they tried to give me Piriton etc before hand so again it was abandoned ! The next week I was told I was going to be changed to cistplatin/ taxol and I was to have two weeks of taxol on its own followed by cistplatin and taxol with no break , so constant chemo every week ! Which I was gutted about as my life is overtaken with weekly bloods and chemo do no chance of enjoying any holiday ! But I have yet to start this plan as for the last two weeks my bloods have been too low and my immune system is not good , feel so tired aches and pains in my shins and thighs as well as the usual pain s in my stomach and lower back ! My hair has slowed down in falling out but is much thinner than before but I'm sure once I get going on more treatment it will come out . I'm scared about this cistplatin as it is as I've read how it makes you feel and really don't want to be sick for a week ! My toes have also now decided to start feeling numb which I'm hoping is just temporary ! I have been so positive before but feel that is slipping away slightly as more and more seems to be happening !! I've asked to be refered to the christy in Manchester which is a good couple of hours away but there's got to be another way to treat this crappy thing !! Hope this hasn't been too long a story , I feel I've gone on longer than I should !! Thanks in advance for reading !!
