    Hi Jeannie and congratulations on being NED. I was diagnosed Sept. 2013 at age 66 with stage IIIC ovarian and have been in remission now for eighteen months. Had two rounds of chemo then debulking surgery. Along with removing the numerous rumors in the abdominal cavity they removed a small growth on my colon and diaphragm . Had four more rounds of chemo both IP and IV. My family found this site for me early in my diagnosis . Over the past two years I have found great support and useful information while being able to help others fighting this xxx disease. Ask your questions, perhaps help answer other's questions. Post on the pin board . All of us are here for each other. Take care, talk anytime.

    Hi Jeannie, Glad you found the site and hope you're still dancing with NED. I was also stage IV at diagnosis and had a lot of constipation troubles with my ovarian cancer. Ugh. Very happy to be past that now. I'm coming up on the anniversary of my diagnosis which makes me a bit apprehensive. I've been disease-free since January of 2014 but the fear is still with me.

    Your story gave me hope. I am glad you're here and would love to hear more about your experiences post-chemo. Hope life is treating you well.

      Hi Jeannie, I was diagnosed May 2015 with stage III OC. Hopefully I am 3 treatments away from dancing with NED. Finished #15 Wednesday. This has been a great site for information,encouragement or venting! Ugh, chemo constipation! I find taking MiraLax for a few days after chemo helps, nothing else has worked for me. Thanks to all that share the success stories!

      Yup, Miralax is a miracle. I also took Senna daily and had some thick weird green banana flavored liquid when the constipation got really bad.
