    It did take 4-6 weeks to recover from surgery, but the more I exercised the better I felt and the quicker I healed.

    Went as Expected: Strongly Agree
    Minimal Recovery: Disagree

    Cancer is back/Recurred

    Oh No

    My CA 125 numbers jumped up from 16 to 150 so I had a CT scan where we found that the disease had returned.

    More fatigue and neuropathy and a drop in platelet count that eventually caused me to stop treatment.
