Hi I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in July. I had a mass removed in September, and had my first meeting with my oncologist in October.
He gave me the devastating news that my cancer is treatable but not curable. To say it came like a sledgehammer to the back of both my husband and my necks is an understatement.
We had thought it would be a course of chemotherapy then get on with our lives.
I had my second chemotherapy of 6 last Monday. I must admit it wasn’t as bad as I’d expected. Though I don’t know what I’d expected really.
I have a wonderful husband daughter, 2 beautiful grandchildren, and a very big support network of family and friends who I am so lucky to have. Though at times I feel so alone, as I don’t know anyone else that has incurable ovarian cancer that I can talk to.
I hope there is someone out there to talk to.
