This is my first time posting here. I'm 37, trans (ftm), though with all the "lady parts" of my reproductive system until this winter.
I was diagnosed with stage 2a ovarian cancer (grade 2 endometrioid type) after an emergency oophorectomy in November and a successful abdominal hysto (etc.) 5 weeks ago (early January). At my follow-up appointment last week they told me I'd be starting chemo this coming Wednesday.
The thing is, two surgeries in a row is a lot. I'm still dealing with lots of discomfort, swelling and minor but chronic pain from the second operation. I'm worried they're starting me on chemo too soon and that it will cause the surgery pain to last for months. Has anyone else started chemo while in the midst of surgery recovery? Has anyone successfully negotiated for a later start date on chemo?
Any tips and insights appreciated!
