    Ok, do not know where “ abuse” came from - suppose to be “ because”, sorry about that.

    Hi LegacyMom. I saw your question and you may get a helpful answer from the community.be abuse we do have several ovarian cancer survivors who are very active on this site. I can not help you with an answer this particular question but I can direct you to a site comprising hundreds of ovarian cancer survivors . The site is on Facebook and called Sisterhood of Ovarian Cancer Survivors. It is a closed site for female survivors and caregivers only, just ask to join. I have found it helpful to belong to several sites for information about this particular type of cancer since it is considered a rare type of cancer. I hope this helps and as always, wishing you better days.

    Hi there Croppinshirt, welcome to the site. I was diagnosed with stage IIIC ovarian cancer in 2013 ar the age of 66. I had wonderful family and friend support but I needed to connect with other survivors and learn about the road ahead. The community of caregivers and survivors welcomed me and I grew stronger reading about their experiences and I appreciated their advice .

    I do not see any experiences listed but because you were diagnosed over three years ago, I am guessing you are having a recurrence. Too many ladies will have a recurrence especially when diagnosed with later stage ovarian cancer, this is the reason I still have my chest port in years after finishing front line chemo.

    Look the site over. Recently WhatNext has added many informational and helpful blogs and videos. One video is by a fellow ovarian cancer survivor, kalindria. She discusses living with recurrence, she too was diagnosed stage IV and will celebrate seven years survivorship in October. You may want to converse with her on her wall.

    I encourage you to keep reaching out. Today there are many more tools in the toolbox to fight this disease giving more survivors the ability to live their lives. I wish you better days in your own battle with this xxx disease and I am here any time to talk.
