My Mum 70 has had 1 round of Carboplatin, all went well. She has however had severe pain when eating, she advise her oncologist of this and was given Morphine medicine. This has not helped at all and out of deperation she went back to her GP yesterday.
Her GP asked if she was aware of what she had, Mum said "Not really", The doctor told her she has a large growth on her left ovary and a smaller one on her right, also nodules in the stomach. This is what has been giving her the problems with pain. The doctor told her that every time she eats the food has to pass these nodules and that is what is causing the severe pain.. She prescribed her Hyoscine to be taken before eating. Mum started them yesterday and what a difference, she managed to eat,and sleep with no pain.
Are stomach nodules a common thing with Ovarian Cancer? Any help / advice would be much appreciated.
Also can anyone advise when the Carboplatin starts to work, her GP told her give it a month and she would notice a difference.
