My sister was recently diagnosed with Metastatic ovarian cancer, only 5 -6 weeks ago, sadly the cancer was far to strong and my sister lost her fight. I have been told that i need to get test for CA125 to see if I have this gene. Is there anything else I need to check for. As a family we are still very much in shock and still finding certain this differcult. I do have a appointment with my doctor next week, but I just need to know is there anything else i can do.
In the past i have suffer from have cysts and also do have irregular cycles, which my sister also suffer from.
Any advice would be very much appreicated, as this is a complete shock and she was only showing signs for 2 months before she passed away. The first sign was she couldnt eat much and then what look like her belly was very swollen. Once she was admitted to hospital 6 weeks ago, as she has having trouble breathing due the the fluid build up, they did two drains, as this was putting too much pressure on her heart. She has 3 sessions in chemo, which we were told were going well and then all of sudden we were told she had 24 hours to live as the cancer had spread everywhere, she only lasted 4 - 8 hours after being told this.
Thank you for reading.
