Diagnosed with 3c Ovarian Cancer in April 16, had 4 cycles of carbo/taxol, then radical hysterectomy 13th September 16, had very few symptoms from chemo and continued to work doing reduced hours until my operation. 5 th cycle of chemo on 24/10/16 been a lot more tired, mouth ulcers and the horrid taste in my mouth, but can't complain, last chemo due today was so excited to get it over and done with, but after having canula put in after 3rd attempt,steroids, antihistamine and anti sickness followed by flush, was advised that my notes had been just been read and my platelets were low following my blood test, so no chemo until I had another blood test, again 3 more pokes to get blood, to be told 45 minutes later will have to come back on Friday and have further blood tests due to platelets still being to low, so will hopefully have final chemo next Monday. I was quite concerned that my treatment had already started before it was identified that I needed another blood test.
I have been reading all you're amazing posts since April and you are all truly inspirational, especially when I am feeling confused about it all.
Thanks for taking the time to ready my post. Xx
