My name is Evie, and I'm new here. I was just diagnosed with Stage 3-C ovarian cancer. No family history that I know of, I get all of my annual screenings and I am very healthy otherwise. I take no medications and I exercise. I'm 67 years old.
To say that I'm shocked is an understatement. I had felt a pressure in my lower abdomen and bloating in my stomach. The bloating has risen to just below by breasts. My CA125 was 879! I had my first chemo yesterday. I have no idea why I'm wide awake, but I slept for 3 hours and now I feel wired. Could it be from the chemo drugs? Hmmmm.
Anyway, I'm looking forward to support from the Share group. Thank you for being here for me! BTW, I live in Stamford, CT, but my friend, Joan, was nice enough to tell me about you!
