    Cancer discovered

    Oh No

    Admitted to the hospital in March 2012 with a blood clot in my R leg. They also found clots in my lungs which led to a CAT scan of my abdomen. Found a mass on my ovary. Had a full hysterectomy and removal of the mass. Turned out to be cancer.

    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    Chemo is ongoing. Having difficulty with neuropathy type pain. Neurotin has really helped neuropathy pain. Began IP chemo 3 weeks ago. Side effects are a little worse but manageable. I've not been able to work during this and have been out on short term disability.

    Easy to Do: Strongly Disagree
    Minimal Side Effects: Strongly Disagree

    Cancer is shrinking

    Celebration

    CA 125 level is down from 500 to 1. Omentum came back from pathology after second look surgery clear of cancer. I'm celebrating when I feel better!
