Hello. I was diagnosed with ovarian and colon cancer A1 stage 3 on July 6th. After surgery ( hysterectomy and part of colon removed) started chemo 3 week's later. Treatment every 21 days. Just finished the 4th outta 8. Having major leg pains numbness in fingers. Stomach is just a big mess. Been in the hospital for pankerious and the pain is unreal. changed diet. not much help. struggles with so many things fingernails are cracking n pealing off in layers. The only relief is when they put me on steroids. my dr. doesn't seem to want to give me pain pills. and has the worst bedside manor. I feel she doesn't believe me. I know depression is taken over. I battle with my self to continue treatment. I want to live I have grandchildren that I cherish. just feel alone in my struggles. I stay so tired between treatments. pain and weaknesses are hard to deal with. I know I'm half way through chemo and I'd be a fool to stop now. so I just try to rest and eat the best I can. any advice would be great. Ty so much.
