    I got cancer...ain't that "OH NO" enough? :-)

    Oh No

    I was initially diagnosed with endometrial cancer then my doc said I needed a hysterectomy . They then then saw a mass on my ovary, did more studies and discovered I had stage 1 ovarian cancer! I never would have thought I would be happy with having cancer, but thank god I did because who knows when the ovarian cancer would have been detected. I have to undergo chemo for 6 months because my doc said I had clear cell cancer and we needed to ensure it wouldn't come back. Next week I am getting a port implanted then the following week I will be given a cat scan. I'm not sure how chemo is going to affect me, everyone tells me it's different for each person. I'd like to know how anyone took to chemo and how did they balance it with work? I'm very fortunate I am able to telework but just don't know how I am going to feel. Can anyone give me some insight? Thanks to all! Journey safe.
