    Hi there, Delo1958 and welcome! You've found a great place to ask questions, get information, and share experiences. I was diagnosed with the same type of cancer; mine was stage IV and I was 58. The good news is, I just passed the SIX YEAR ANNIVERSARY of that original diagnosis. Since my original diagnosis, I've had a couple of relapses. I'm currently still getting chemo but feeling good.

    Some time ago, I recorded a series of videos for WhatNext about my cancer journey. You and your Mom may find them helpful. I've included a link at the end of this message should you wish to check them out. My hair is longer now and I have a new knee but not much else has changed since I recorded the videos.

    WhatNext.com is a great place for everyone, from the newly diagnosed to those of us who've been living with cancer for some time - friends and loved ones too! While you're here at WhatNext.com, check out the questions and experiences of other folks here. You can find people who've had the same cancer, surgeries, chemotherapy and experiences should you wish. It's often reassuring to know others have been through what you're facing and thrived. I also recommend the PINBOARD - there are often humorous or uplifting posts that can make your day. Definitely worth checking out.

    In the meantime, I'm here if you have any questions or want to chat.

    Welcome Delo1958,
    I suspect you are in treatment or beginning it. Be sure you have a Gynecological Oncology Surgeon do your surgery. They have better outcomes. I was diagnosed with stage 3C Ovarian cancer in 2015. There are more treatment options now and research and clinical trials are ongoing everyday. I am also 62 years old. It was shocking and scary when I first got diagnosed. I suspect you are experiencing similar feelings. Feel free to ask any questions. We are here for you.

    Delo, I have got to learn to proofread before sending posts. I was diagnosed in 2013 not 2913 and am not a time traveler. Take care.

    Hi Delo, welcome to WhatNext. I am a six year survivor of stage IIIC ovarian cancer. I was diagnosed just before my 67tg birthday in 2913. Right away I came to the internet in search of other survivors to find out more about the journey ahead. I was lu ky to find the WhatNe t site. Along with all the useful information provided, I have benefitted from the advice and encouragement provided by the WhatNext Community. Our family and friends are a wonderful source of support, but there is nothing like talking to another survivor. Survivors know the great physical and emotional toll fighting this disease takes.

    I encourage you to keep reaching out. Ask any questions you have using the question tab and talk personally to survivors on their walls. This journey of survivorship is tough ,there will be up and down days. Try to take things one day at a time and be kind to yourself, fatigue is a common side effect of chemo. Anytime you need to talk, or vent, I am here. Wishing you better days ahead and sending a hug.
