    Hello. I can maybe help. Last May I had a surgery to remove a mass that was found from pain I was having. I was then diagnosed with Peritoneal Cancer, went through 6 rounds of chemo, had a debulking surgery on 12/12/12 and then was rediagnosed as primary Ovarian cancer. Went through 2 more rounds of chemo, my last one was 2/7/13. I went back to work on 2/28. My CA125 test was a little elevated last month, I have to wait until 7/18 for my next results to see if it went back down. That's a quick recap. I went through quite a bit and can share my experiences with you. I am 50 years old and live not to far away from you. Let me know how I can help. Have Faith everything will be ok.

    Well I've gone through 3 chemo treatments and 3 to go. I've had typical symptoms with each consisting of slight nausea and body aches that last for about 4 days. Then I feel pretty normal for 2 weeks before the next round. I just had a picc line put in a week ago and already having issues drawing blood on Tuesday and then last night I couldn't get that line to flush. Waiting to hear from dr this morning on my next step in this process.

    I'm trying to find out more from others that have been diagnosed with the same thing as I have been. I'm not sure the % of it recurring or how after everything has been done after my debulking surgery probably mid dec, how do they monitor you in the future to watch to catch it if it comes back?
