Hello. I'm brand new to this group and I have loved scrolling through all your thoughtful, helpful comments. By far this is the best place I've yet to land for informative, current opinions/thoughts on ovarian cancer. Doesn't mean I want to be here, though Sigh.
Diagnosed stage 3c OC two months ago, debulking surgery already done, finished 2 of 6 rounds of carbo/taxol/Avastin chemo. No cancer left to the naked eye save for a 4 mm mass under my liver. Seeing my surgeon tomorrow for pains in the abdomen that I don't think are related to scar/tissue healing.
Has anyone ever heard of or had a reoccurrence DURING chemo treatment? I'd like to think that sounds crazy, but getting cancer sounded crazy to me at one point yet here I am!
Everyone please tell me they've never heard of that and that the mere concept is insane
I don't think it is a recurrence If you were NED before starting chemo. I had a lesion on my liver sometime between recurrences but it turned out to be a benign lesion. it was showing in every scan and doctors were scaring me every time! It was nothing!
Could your pain be from internal tissues healing? or adhesion tissues forming?
Check with your doctor if you can be on Olaparib after chemo for prevention.
Good idea, thanks. Yes, definitely could be from healing, except these current ones just felt a little different. Of course everything could be another cancer in our minds, right? I'm new to all this and I hate how it feels like that fear will never, ever subside.
