1 More Chemo

Hi Everyone,

Well I had my appointment yesterday with my oncology doctor just to check how things are progressing and see if I was fit enough for my last chemo on Thursday 22nd Nov. All was well so I'm having my final chemo this year in a couple of days time. He has booked me in for a CT scan at the beginning of January to see how its all going in abdomen as I had my Hysterectomy in October. What was interesting was after the op they found a tumour in my right Fallopian tube and although he is not 100% certain he though my cancer may have started in my tube. I have read this is very rare and only happens to 1% of ladies. Has anyone else been diagnosed with Fallopian tube cancer ? and if so what have you been told.

Hope you are all having better weather than we are in Kent its very wet and drab here today.

Love and Hugs to you all Babs x x

  • Hi Babs

    Great to know there's only one more chemo to go. Re your Fallopian tube question, I've come across several sources saying the tubes can frequently be the point of origin of OC. Here's a link to one. cancer.stanford.edu/gynecol...

    The sun has come out here for the first time in days. Hope it reaches you soon.

    All the best for Thursday.

    Love

  • Hi Babs,

    Best wishes for Thursday....I have heard of this... at the time of my operation my surgical oncologist said they wanted to make sure mine didn't start in the Fallopian tube.. but it hadn't.. Lots of love x G x :-)

  • Replied earlier but it got lost in the ether! Just to say I am so pleased it is all getting towards the end. I do so hope that the chemo and the op have cleared things up for you. If it started in the tube, does that mean it is more likely to be isolated? Hope so!

    Good luck for your last chemo. I'm really looking forward to meeting you on the 28th. :-)

    Love Wendy xx

  • He was not sure if it was isolated, because I had 4 chemos before the operation. He said it could have started in several places but the chemo had shrunk most of the tumours and the only one they found was the one in my right fallopian tube and in the mucosa. I am feeling positive now that things are on the up. I also saw the news today about Ovarian Cancer which gives us all hope.

    See you on the 28th I plan to get there about 11.30 am

  • Hi babs, my cancer originated in my fallopian tube and then spread to the ovary. My consultant said that this was very rare but that pity would be treated exactly the same as if it had started in the ovary. I don't know if that helps but she really wasn't that concerned snoot where it originated and even said that some experts believe that ovarian cancer starts in the fallopian tube???? Glad to hear you're nearly at the end of treatment, hope it all goes well and that its all good news from now on. Lisa xxxx

  • I'm sorry for those awful mistakes, its my phone and predictive text, does make hilarious reading sometimes lol xx

  • Hi Babs

    Good luck for Thursday, it's a wonderful feeling knowing it's your last chemo!

    Love Linda xx

  • Hi Linda, I feel I'm at the end of a long and hard journey. We must all be positive and carry on fighting this.

    Love Babs x x

  • Hi Babs

    Yes The cancer (not mine no ownership!!!!) started in my left fallopian tube and had just spread to my ovary when they eventually operated. Oncologists said that as not much is known they treat as ovarian!

    So great you are on your last chemo. Afterwards is frightening flying solo but exhilarating too

    Luv'n'hugs Suex

  • Hi Babs

    I know how you feel, it's great to be at the end of that long road...well done! It's a little scarey at suddenly being 'out there' again but it's a a fantastic feeling knowing no more hospitals for a while. What a perfect way to be able to celebrate your Birthday.

    Love Linda xx

  • Last chemo is something to celebrate. And just in time for Christmas too. Brill.

  • Oh the freedom! Just think, no more bruised and abused arms! Those pesky effects receding and disappearing! Good luck, and well done! X

  • Dear Babs

    You must be demob happy today. Hope all goes well tomorrow for your final and last Chemotherapy - and all the birthday celebrations.

    Professor Hani Gabra said that Ovarian Cancer starts in the fallopian tubes and they really should rename it as it isn't Ovarian at all but arrives in the ovaries as a secondary tumour. I was really cheesed off when I found that out as I only had one fallopian tube to start with and thought it was pretty bad luck.

    Now enjoy the freedom of no hospital visits, no sickness or tiredness - just fun, love and laughter.

  • Hi Babs!

    Great news, you should be feeling better in time for Christmas!

    No idea where my cancer started! There were tumours all over! Now I seem to be tumour free for the time being!
