Hello, I have made contact for my wife and she will hopefully be able to use the network. She has started chemo and has stage 3 OVC. We had no warnings and it was a sudden case of bloating 3 weeks ago. She has been dealt with swiftly though with the GP sending her to the hospital who did all the tests and scans and sent her to a Gynae-oncologist. Couple of questions. 1) They want to do Chemo first before surgery - is this becoming the norm? 2) She was ok with the first days Chemo, but after 4 days she is very tired and has aches and stomach pain and went to bed yesterday. The out of hrs GP gave her some oral morphine overnight to take. She tried to get up to shower this morning but blacked out and bruised her back. I put her back in bed and checked her temperature etc. Have others experienced this sort of tiredness and pain?
