    Procedure or Surgery (Surgery): This was surgery to repair an umbilical hernia and several other smaller hernias, about 2 years after my initial Radical Hysterectomy to remove Ovarian Cancer Stage IV.

    Side Effects (All of the above.): I have experienced almost every side effects listed. Some more irritating than the others but all are debilitating in some form or another. It is a year after my diagnosis and I feel almost as miserable as when this whole big circle started. Keeping spirits up is very difficult when the side effects keep rearing their nasty heads. There ought to be a better way to indicate what side effects we've had than allowing only one to be selects. The way I see, NO one side effect rises above another.

      Sorry you are still having a hard time one year after diagnosis. I don't know why some people have a much harsher time than others, but I do know it is no picnic for anyone? I can imagine it is hard to keep your spirits up I think we all have times of doubt and or depression.You don't mention if you are finished with chemo.Many of the side effects eventually subside after chemo.Hair grows back.strength starts to return, nausea subsides.Neuropathy unfortunately can linger. Hope your worse days are behind you and better days are ahead
