    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    A mass on my right ovary was just found, and I'm scheduled for surgery on Tuesday. I have read everything I could on ovarian cancer and feel pretty well informed. What has been difficult to find are any support groups. I need to connect, and this is my first attempt at that.

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    I've had three rounds of etoposide/Cisplatin. Had an allergic reaction to Cisplatin. Also, kidneys not in great shape, so doc discontinued the Cisplatin (rough on kidneys) and started Carboplatin. Much better, absolutely no side effects after first infusion. Two or three rounds to go. Really looking forward to summer!

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