Hello Ovacome members, I am new to the site. I have found the site an amazing comfort and resource since my mums OV diagnosis. My mum as diagnosed Stage 3B OC early November 2012. She has since had debulking and was due to start taxol/carbo chemo on New Years Eve. She did not get any chemo treatement in advance of surgery. Shes been in hospital since December 28th with an abscess in her pelvic cavity. She's being treated with IV antibiotics and has had 2 litres drained from her tummy plus surgical procedure to scrap away abscess. Her tummy is still hugely swollen and CT scan showed spots on liver and lungs. We are so worried and know she needs to start her chemo. Does anyone have any experience of post op infection/abscess? My mum was in great health pre diagnosis, non smoker, really fit and active.
I would appreciate any information whatsoever. Thanks so much.
