Morning all - I have seen my Surgeon and Gynecologist on 4 separate occasions, apart from the fact that I appear to go deaf and dumb at the meetings, they don't seem very forthcoming in telling me exactly what is wrong with me. Yes I know it is Ovarian Cancer but what type? Stage? (just saw IV on ct report)
My Surgeon decided I was not well enough for the surgery that the MDT had planned, because of pleural infusion and my subsequent shortness of breath, so I started Chemo. My husband goes with me to meetings and he says I am not asking questions because I don't really want to know, I suspect he is right but is it a good thing to continue with my head in the sand! Or should I be braver and start asking questions? and if yes does it help come to terms with it all, still can't quite believe its happening and maybe they have made a mistake. What did you do?
