Hi, my mum has recently been admitted to hospital with blood clots in both legs and both lungs; fluid in her abdomen & lungs which has cancer cells and a 14 cm "mass" which they have now advised is a polyp. Although they have not found her primary cancer it is likely to be ovarian or in her uterus & she has high levels of CA125. I have been checking on the internet and "malignant" ascites is said to have a poor prognosis ie only a few months. What i wanted to know is if anyone on here has had advanced (stage 4) ovarian cancer, and had malignant ascites & survived it? For the past few weeks I have been pushing for treatment for my mum but today she was very week and tired and I hope i have not been naive by thinking that treatment/positive outlook will help her. if anyone has any info I would be very grateful so i can share it with mum to give her some good news thanks Rosey x
