Worried sick

I had my CT scan and blood test for CA125 today. I see the oncologist tomorrow having relapsed after 10 years. Currently on Niraparib maintenance. Really disappointed to see NICE decision too so not a good day. Sorry so pessimistic today.

Wow… 10 years! You have done so well but I suppose that means this recurrence has come as a horrible shock. As with your original diagnosis, it should get easier once you have a plan. I am not going to say don’t worry… you will anyway but I hope you get some answers quickly and get on to treatment so that you can look forward xx

Certainly not a wuss , must have been a terrible shock after 10 yrs .Well you obviously responded well 10yrs ago so no reason why you shouldn’t again 🤗 What was your stage & grade at first diagnosis? Get through the treatment, you’ve done it before! Then set your sights on the next 10 years, you’re amazing 😊Sending hugs Dee x

Grade 3, Stage 1c. Apparently now 4a - bummer! Thanks Mammi what an inspiring message.

Wow. Congrats on 10 years something we all hope for. Let's hope your luck continues but whatever you will find a way forward. Hugs from paris

Know how you feel mine came back after 18 years, it is such a huge shock one I have struggled to cope with . I read the posts on here and realise how lucky Ive been but still very hard. I have had more chemo which knocked bone mets on head but low activity in lymph nodes. Parp didnt work for me so start six sessions of carboplatin tomorrow. Am thinking of you x
