Hey everyone. Good to get on this forum & hear of other people going through the same experiences.
I had debulking surgery Dec 2016. The cancer had spread further than the CT scan showed so they had to remove my sigmoid colon, consequently I ended up with a colostomy bag. Started chemo in Jan 2017 & then a few days after ended up in oncology with a bowel blockage. 2 weeks of Ng tube & no food apart from a saline drip they decide to operate. It was scar tissue & adhesions that they sorted, but left me very weak & under weight at just over 6st. Continued with my chemo & there was no sign of cancer at my CT scan in June 2017. I am currently having avastin every three weeks until June 2018. Most days I feel quite positive other days I feel very down. The first thing my oncologist said after my operation was "there is no cure for this" a bit of a bomb shell really! I understood the impact of ovarian cancer as my mum & nan had both had it, but still a tough thing to hear.
Sorry for the huge essay!
