Hi all, I am having my surgery on on the 22nd of this month. I have been told that my CT scan has shown a complete resolution of ascites, decrease in the omental nodularity as well as the adnexal mass and also decreased right pleural effusion and a confirmed good response to chemotherapy. This is good isn’t it? Lots of love and hugs Sheenagh

It sounds wonderful. You have obviously responded well and I hope the operation is a massive success. (Wish mine had been caught early enough to allow an operation.) Please let us all know how things go. Best wishes, love and hugs x


My ovarian cancer is stage 3 borderline 4. I hope you are well. Sending you hugs. X

Hello sheenagh,

This is really good news, your body has responded well to the chemotherapy. Wishing you well with your surgery.

Hi Lundy,

Thank you. Hope you are well. Lots of love and hugs Sheenagh

Funny thing….I had the exact same before my surgery….reduction of omentum mass/pleural effusion disappeared/ they could see “no” cancer on my CT scan and got me in for surgery…ironically on the 22nd of June 😂. This is very good for you!!!

My pathology results after surgery showed complete or near complete response to chemotherapy…. I’m wishing you the same results.

Hi Tigger,

How strange! 😂hopefully I will have the same outcome as you. Sending you love and hugs. Sheenagh

Hello Sheenagh. This is a good response to the chemo and great news. I hope the surgery wipes the rest out. Good luck. Sending lots of hugs. Jackie.

Great news, good luck with the surgery.

That's great news that you can have surgery so that's positive. Even though I dont know what all that means about the shrinkage? I had 6 cycles before I could have surgery. It's a big operation just take time to recovery. X

hi, it sounds really good! I hope your surgery goes well, take it easy, listen to your body and be kind to yourself and before you know where you are you will be on the road to recovery. Big hug, Kathy xx

Hi MoriniI had 4 round of chemotherapy. I hope you get a great response to. Sending you love and hugs Sheenagh

Hi Sheenagh, it's great news that you have responded so well to the chemo. I had my surgery first & the chemo after. I want to wish you all the best with the surgery now. It will take time to recover from the surgery, just take every day as it comes, don't push yourself too hard & you will get there. Lots of Hugs Xx Mag 💐

No I haven't asked & won't be asking but that's my choice & everyone is different . I was diagnosed stage 3c just before my 53rd birthday in 2019 & will do everything possible to stay around for my two daughters & husband. Don't get me wrong it's been a hard 2yrs & sometimes I worry, but then I park the negative thoughts & get on with life. That's how I get through this dreadful disease but other ladies might have different ways of dealing with it. All the best & when your feeling stronger after the surgery let me know how your doing X

That’s s fantastic way of dealing with it. Will let you know how I am. Xx

Excellent. Carry on hugs from paris

Great news

Great news! I was stage 4 and 73 at the time. I will be 75 in November. The internet says that women over 65 don’t do as well. I try and not worry about statistics, because everyone is different. Hope things keep going well for you. Sending a hug from the U.S. Donna


Thank you. Hope everything is well with you. Sending you lots of love. Sheenagh
