Hello. I'm new

I stumbled across this and have so many fears I was diagnosed unstaged Ovarian cancer in October 2016. I've been in remission and my last scan showed two lesions on my liver. I am so scared.

Hi, Welcome to the site it's always hard to have a new lady join but this is why we are here to help each other as much as possible with advice, encouragement, what ever you need.

We all understand your fears the worse is not knowing but as soon as your team has a plain in place you will feel better, try a get a phone number for your clinical nurse she can help when you just need to talk to someone.

On this site you will find lots of ladies who have been on here for years, I've been on here now for over 3 years and I don't intend to go just yet.

Try to keep your chine up I know it easier said then done, take care Lorraine xx🎉🎉

Hello and welcome.... sorry to hear you'e been left with this worrying information. Have you had an opportunity yet to discuss what this means for you with your consultant or CNS? It's difficult if you've been left with this.... you're definitely not on your own though & there's always folk here with support, knowledge, kindness & good humour! Wishing you hope & strength, Sx

(FWIW I had a scan at about 2 1/2 yrs post treatment which showed up 3 x liver lesions. I was really freaked out!! It was inconclusive as to their nature. I was scanned again about 8 months later and as there was no change, its been left as no concern since then. I am now +5 years)

Hello and thanks for the welcome. It's comforting to know that other women are going through similar struggles. I pray these lesions on my liver are scared tissue or just lesions that are just there. I will keep my fingers crossed for good results.

Welcome to the site, the ladies on here are kind and supportive and I hope you will ask as many questions as you have, I imagine your onc is talking at more treatment at the moment, does he have a plan of action for you?

Welcome to the site Unlockes!

I'm also pretty new here but have already found it to be the most wonderful resource. It's so important to have other people you can turn to who understand what you're going through.

I hope you feel more at ease soon and keeping my fingers crossed for good news!
