It's now three weeks since my TAH and I went back for my follow up appointment yesterday to be told I have stage 1c OC. I didn't realise the shock I'd feel at being told I had cancer as all my scans in the build up to the TAH and the blood tests were normal. This gave me hope that it was just an innocent cysts and the reality of the diagnosis has hit me hard. I've been told that chemotherapy is required to sap any stray cells that may have escaped and I'm scared about it. I just have no idea what to expect.
I'm just just looking for some advice on how to cope with the diagnosis and chemo. Although I've not had my appointment with the Oncologist yet I have been told that I may have two options for chemo. The first being Carboplatin on its own or second option is Carboplatin and Paclitaxel together.
Does anyone have any experience with these drugs? Any advice would be really appreciated at this time. Thank you in advance
