Treatment Options - Brielle

Decision Point Associated with Ovarian and Fallopian Tube Cancer. Posted on January 2, 2013 View this journey (2 Experiences)

The first place I turn for advice and guidance is through prayer. My husband is my next source of support and has been a wonderful care partner going to chemo treatments , appointments, taking notes during consultations so I can refer back to them, and assuming household duties when needed. I have been so fortunate that my gync onc has partnered with us in this journey. He and his office staff have truly been amazing. He also referred me to a wonderful oncologist at St. Francis for my IP chemo. While, I have always been independent and self-sufficient, this is when I have had to learn to lean on others. Superwoman no longer lives here. Others are always willing to help. My favorite scripture has been "Trust in the Lord with all your heart. " I have also had to learn to listen to my body more. It is ok if I am tired to take a rest. I have learned to set daily goals. During the rough chemo, a goal might have been just to take a shower. My hope contines for long term remission. Although my life has very much changed after my diagnosis, the greatest lesson I have learned is how truly blessed my life has been along this journey.
