Mine were very large also. I had testing and chemo. Then total debulking, that's a hysterectomy removal with ovaries tubes and alot more. Then more chemo and alot more tests. I have had a very large support system and prayers. It has been 2.8 yrs since I started this journey and praise God here we are. I will pray for you. Get more information to help you out also.

Have you had surgery yet? I didn’t find out exactly what type my 13 cm ovarian tumor was until after a complete hysterectomy and debulking took place. I can certainly understand how scared you are right now. Please let me know what you find out what your treatment will be, and if I can help you in any, just write to me. I have been in your shoes.

Stephanie being scared is a very normal reaction. While none of us can predict the future we can share that if you have cancer there is a lot of hope. I was diagnosed with stage 3c ovarian cancer in 2005. I’m now a 14 year survivor. First things first. Let us know what they are telling you your next steps are. Hopefully it’s an appointment with a gynecologic oncologist.

Best wishes. Gwen

My tumor was the size of a basketball by the time I could have surgery. I was very anemic. I had 3 types of ovarian cancer and was cancer in both ovaries, but nowhere else. In addition, I also had uterine cancer. The major blessing was that all were stage 1. I had 6 rounds of taxol and carboplatin. Prayer is the only reason I am still here. I am almost 3 1/2 years out from having chemo.

Dear Stephanie, I am sorry you are scared, it is a horrible feeling that we have all had. Take heart, most people on this forum live many years longer than they were told they would so I think you may as well. Try not to overthink things, try to meditate, seek counselling, go to church if that gives you comfort, speak to friends and make sure you only see the ones with a positive attitude! If your anxiety becomes extreme there is no shame in seeing your GP and getting medication to help. I will be thinking of you and wish you well. Please keep posting and let us know how you are getting on. You will find many friends here to help and support you.

Love Pat xx
