My mother was diagnosed with stage 4 OC in Dec 11, had initial surgery, then 3 cycles of carbo/taxol chemo which was efficient in reducing CA125, then another extensive surgery (supra-radical) end of March when uterus/lymph nodes/spleen/gall bladder/pieces of colon were removed.
She now has an ileostomy.
Has anyone experienced this and how did you manage after surgery? My mother is still in great pain, 12 days after the surgery. She is still at the hospital.
