    Cancer is back/Recurred

    Oh No

    I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in December of 2009 stage 1c and did four rounds of chemo. In August 2012 I have diagnosed again with ovarian cancer. This time it is going to be 6 rounds of chemo and am going to try IP.

    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    I am doing four rounds of taxotere and carboplatinum. Chemo is difficult. The first round was the worst, but now I have the proper medications to use to help combat the many side effects.

    Easy to Do: Strongly Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Strongly Disagree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Strongly Disagree

    Change of plan

    Oh No

    It was decided that I will not do IP chemo this time. Instead of doing 6 treatments I will do 4; since I am responding well to the treatment and it has not spread!
