Hi my sister has a recurrence of sex chord stromal tumour of ovarian origin with small lung spots
Chemo is not working and although we were refused surgery before chemo in our current hospital we have has a second opinion with Dr. CF in Hammersmith hospital and she agreed to do radical surgery to removed all the abdominal tumours in the peritoneum.
I fear that this may be a very challenging surgery to recover from and she will need chemo after for systemic disease and there is no certainty of benefit.
Can anyone tell me about their experience of pain and recovery post this massive type of surgery and was it worth it.
I understand everyone’s case is individual but any info would be great.
We will need to travel to Uk for this surgery and pay privately.
