    Lost loved one

    Loss

    The day I got my port I had my head shaved. When we got home late that day our 14 year old cat was very ill and had to be put down the next day. I spent 31 days in the hospital and my favorite aunt died while I was in there and a very good friend died, also.

    Abdominal hysterectomy

    Procedure or Surgery

    I had stage 3 ovarian cancer that had wrapped around my colon and spread all around in the abdominal cavity. I had 3 rounds of chemo and one of those drugs ate up my colon. This is just a snapshot of a long hard year.

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    After severe reactions to the first chemo drugs I was put on Gemcitabine and carboplatin, except for the itchies at infusion time, they were very easy to tolerate and very few sides....minimal fatigue and nausea

    Hair is back

    Celebration

    When I could no longer take taxol and bevacizumab, the drugs they gave me didn't make me lose my hair and it has been back now since September, except for armpit and leg hair, YAY
