    Llk, welcome to our WhatNext family! I just wanted to let you know You can do this!!!!! I was diagnosed at 62 with Stage IV Ovarian Cancer... I told my Gynecologic Oncologist Surgeon, I wanted to fight..... First surgery, He removed a 39 pound tumor and my ovaries, then carefully scraped all the cancer he could see from my urethra, my intestines, etc. We did six 28 day cycles of I/V and I/P Chemo infusions. (The Strong Stuff) Day 1 was I/V infusion, and Days 2 and 8 were I/P infusions. After a few weeks of finishing the infusions... I did infusion a month for 12 months. I was tired - very very tired....But it was doable.... I've been cancer free for 13 years now... At diagnosis I was given six months to live..... We'll be here to help you, cheer you and listen and comfort you. Welcome to our Family!

    Sindacas, We have something in common... I was 62 when diagnosed with Stage IV Epithelial Ovarian Cancer. The Gynecologic Oncologist Surgeon removed a 39 lb. tumor, and then carefully scrapped all the cancer he could see from my intestine, urethrae, etc. He also implanted an internal port on a rib so that I could receive Strong Chemo directly into my abdominal cavity.. I did six months of 28 day cycles of Strong Chemo. Day 1 was I/V infusion, days 2 and 8 were I/P infusions... Then waited 20 more days and started over..... THEN after six weeks I had a PET CT Scan showing NED, He asked me to do a year of once a month Strong Chemo. I did it. I asked God to please take my hand and lead me to where He wanted me to be. Here I am 13 years later praying that you too will also have great results. May God bless you also...
