Never give up hope

Hi everyone I'm not an active member on here but I wanted to share with you that 4 years ago my mum was operated on for 2 very large tumours stage 3 oc, she followed with chemo I'm afraid I can't remember the type but I wanted to give hope to the fact I thought my mum was going to die in a very short space of time , 4 years later and she has a low ca125 but doesn't really have scans , she gets checked on and examined and is doing brilliantly, her consultant seems to go with how she is feeling and right or wrong my mum knows that it may come back but she try's not to dwell on it , I just wanted to say that 4 years is a great remission time and I'm so thankful I still have her here today , be strong ladies and I wish you all the best xxx Kerrie

  • Hello Kerrie. I can relate to your journey. My mum was diagnosed 3c at the end of 2013. She's still battling on. Just having more Carbo/Taxel as it's become active again but she amazes me and her quality of life is pretty good at 80!! I think she's driving herself to the hospital for today's chemo!! Sending a hug. X

  • Hi, That really is such great news, & thank you for telling us as it will give us all hope. Although I was diagnosed with endometrial cancer, because it had gone into one of my fallopian tubes it is classed as ovarian type, stage 2 grade 3 serous. I am due to go this Thursday for a fourth 3 month check & if all ok I will graduate to 6 monthly checks. Onwards & upwards fingers crossed.

    Love Caleda xxx

  • That's fantastic news, and you have brightened my day. I was diagnosed in Jan this year of stage 3 b, I've had the debunking surgery and next week start Chemo for 5 months. So far everyone I've met have had it come back, so it's good to hear about your Mum. God bless her.
