    Welcome to our WhatNext Family!... I was 62 when I was diagnosed with Epithelial Ovarian Cancer - Stage IV, My Gynecologic Oncologist Surgeon removed a 39 pound tumor, and then carefully scraped all the cancer he could see from my intestines, and urethra along with removing a 'fat pad' with cancer cells. (I'd had a hysterectomy at age 45)

    I was then scheduled for I/V and I/P chemo of Taxol and Cisplatin! After surgery I asked my Oncologist how long I had...... He answered "Six Months"... I told him I wanted to fight!... So fight we did. That all took place in February 2006! I will turn 74 the end of May and am still cancer free. 00000

    Now I'll tell you what I did. I was very scared when I heard, cancer and Stage IV.... I'm here to tell you IV is just a number!!! I had Six 28 day cycles of I/V infusions on day 1; then I/P infusions on Day 2 and Day 8 of each cycle. It was totally doable.... I received meds to keep me from throwing up. I lost my hair, but had been told to buy a short wig prior to starting chemo. My hint for GREAT reasonably priced wigs... PaulaYoung.com People always told me they'd never dream it was a wig.....

    But most important... when I told God how scared I was..He immediately removed my fear. Then I asked Him to take my hand and lead me to where He wanted me to be.... He has never let go of my hand.... I'm saying a prayer that you too will be calmed and directed by His hand. God Bless You.
