I was just diagnosed with this type of cancer, primary peritoneal cancer, which I am told by gyn oncologist is treated the same as oc. I noticed symptoms due to having fluid in abdomen, had a CT scan. Oncologist has me starting 9 weeks of chemo, carbon/pacitaxel (think that is the sp) then a hysterectomy and then 9 more weeks of chemo. I am soooo scared. I am wondering if anyone on here has any similar experience with this type of cancer or words of encouragement to make this any easier. She said this is a rare one. I love reading posts on this site....just got brave enough to add this now. And yes my CA125 was way elevated, scarily so. Thank you for any comments in advance.
