Hi lovely ladies saw the surgeon yesterday and went through what may need to happen and was told I may end up with a stoma and then will need carbo and taxol about 8 weeks after surgery. Date for surgery is 20th July, which I was so disappointed at as I'm really uncomfortable with ascites that seems to have come on quite quickly! I'm not sleeping and even trying to eat enough is a struggle.
I can't get negative thoughts out of my head that things seem to be deteriorating and I still have almost 2 weeks to wait until any treatment begins! I'm trying to stay positive for my family but inside I'm terrified and feel so unwell now I'm scared!
Not sure if I should ring the nurse on Monday and speak to her about how I'm feeling.
Any tips on how to try and get more comfortable before my surgery? They did say if it got really bad they could drain some fluid off but that doesn't sound good either! Have any of you lovelies had experience of this?
