I was diagnosed with OC Stage 1 (grade 3 cells) last September. Following a full hysterectomy I had 6 sessions of carboplatin and taxol to blast a few 'floating' cells. I went into remission at the end of February this year with a CA125 of 7 and a clear CT scan. However, after experiencing some pain in July and because my CA125 had gone up to 38 by early August, I had a further CT scan the results of which I found out today. A 5 cm tumour has been found on my rectum and now I face either more chemo, radiotherapy or surgery which could be removal of the tumour and the need to have a stoma. A decision will be made on Monday, but the Consultant today favoured more chemo. Needless, to say I feel absolutely devastated at an occurrence especially so early into remission let alone all the nasty feelings it throws up for the future. Feel I need some inspiration and hope at the moment.
