Debulking Surgery

44 Replies

Hello Ladies - Well the debulking surgery went ahead this time and they remove all the usual - ovaries fallopian tubes omentum cervix womb and appendix, the surgeon said the op had gone well, and was pleased that my suspected liver was clear as were all my lymp nodes, he said that I was NED apart from microscopic spots which may be disease or might be scar tissue? I am home after 5 days and although still sore not feeling too bad, am able to walk and am later going to venture up the stairs. Hope you are feeling as well as can be expected. Hugs and Kisses Lyn xx

Great news that the op went well. Don,t be tempted to do too much too soon.Rest when necessary, eat well, a walk in the fresh air not a marathon, don,t be tempted to lift too soon. I think I did that which I am sure resulted in an incisions hernia. Chris

Congratulations Lyn

You have done the hard work, i hope you are letting family and friends spoil you?

Funny story i was just getting up a few days after my op when i heard my back door open and a friend coming in she shouted ‘hi its only me’ and headed towards my bedroom. The next thing i heard was oh my god bl##dy hell! As she found my husband hoovering the stairs in just his pants 😂😂🙈

I saw it all unfolding i just couldnt move fast enough to stop it 🤣 anyway shes almost out of therapy, and i managed not to split my stitches laughing

Lots of love

Hi I had this done and am doing well it was four years almost xx

So glad that you got your profile back and that you finally had your much needed surgery.

Nite chemo will clean up those sinister spots and rogue cells.

Let yourself relax and enjoy your convalescence.

You might not actually be stage 4, if there was no cancer inside any organs or lesions in your lungs.

I was first diagnosed as Stage 4, because of the pleural effusion, but downgraded to 3c immediately.that’s not to say I’m home free.

Just now coming to the reality that I will have to live with cancer.

No real escape, just remission.

Keep the faith,

Best wishes,

WOW home within 5 days - that is pretty good going. Wishing you a continued speedy recovery then go and really enjoy yourself. I had a wonderful summer following my debulking - now the beast is back and things aren't so good so please pack as much into those NED months (hopefully years) as you can. xxxxx

in reply to jenny8c

Chin up Jenny - you got to NED once absolutely no reason you cant do it again!! Lyn xx

Great news! I know you're glad it's over! Now just take care of yourself during recovery. Onward!

delia2 profile image

Yay. I'm glad it's over and went well. It will take 6 weeks to feel yourself again so take it easy. xoxo

My sister has primary peritoneal cancer and has to have 6 rounds of chemo before she can have debulking surgery. She had her 4 th round today. We are praying she has no problems with this round. She ended up in ICU after each of the first 3. Different complications from bleeding ulcers to dangerous dehydration. Sounds like your surgery went really well. Her CA125 after 3 chemos is 339. It was 9,000 when she first was diagnosed.

in reply to Scummings1

Here's hoping your sisters 4th cycle does not cause her problems. Wishing you both all the very best Lyn x

Will you not have any more chemo ?

Yes I have two more cycles of taxo/carbo as mop up. It has been mentioned about adding Avastin but need to see oncologist to discuss.
