I have been told right from the beginning by several oncologists, surgeon and macmillon surgeon that a cure is hopeful and that is what they were aiming for.
When I ask questions about reocurrance they always add - IF IT COMES BACK and they say there is always a hopeful IF!!!!!
I was so positive but since I have been listening to recent readers on here, all you have made me feel is deep doom and gloom. Basically you have all clarified my deepest of gut instincts which usually end up to be correct.
I appreciate that NO ONE can tell us what will be in store for us around the corner however, I kind of feel petrayed by the medical proffesion for giving me false hopes - I have to say `if` they are false hopes.
I read up on the internet that a grade 3 is a aggresive tumour that is more likely to spread and more likely to come back. When I asked my oncologist about this ( I have seen several and asked each one the same questions, to whom they all answer the same), I was toild not to read too much on the internet and not to take notice of what anyone else says because each person is individual and there are several types of OC`s. I was also told that ALL Cancers are grade 3, they never see a grade one and hardly ever see a gfrade 2. I`m not sure if they were referring to OC only or all cancers, I presume OC. However, I have taken note on here that some of you had been diagnosed with a lower grade.
I am talking about grade here not staging ok.
I look forward to your responces.
My logic in this is the cancer specialists and researchers will always be hopeful of CURE, maybe we should too.
However, I do feel there is a fine line between positive and burying ones head in the sane with false hopes.
Love to you all from Tina xx
