    Welcome katlouboid,
    You are 6 years out from diagnosis. How are you? People diagnosed with earlier stages of Ovarian Cancer generally do better than those of us diagnosed late stage. What do you mean by post cancer treatment trauma? If you would share more about what you are going through, we might know how to help you. I hope you are doing well. Feel free to ask any questions. We are here for you

    Welcome Marmc,
    Congratulations on over 6 years surviving/thriving with stage 3C Ovarian Cancer. I have stage 3 C too, diagnosed in July 2015. How are you? I suspect you may be having a reoccurence or maybe you have joined to support others and gather information. Whatever the reason, we are glad you have joined us. Feel free to ask any questions. We are here for you.

    Welcome Lisakend,
    I am sorry you have been diagnosed with Ovarian cancer. Cancer is a word noone wants to hear. I was in shock for months afterward. If you have not had surgery yet, I urge you to have a Gynecological Oncology Surgeon perform your surgery. They have better outcomes than regular surgeons. It is very overwhelming when you first are diagnosed. I tried just to deal with issues in the immediate future and not worry about what is ahead. So after you have surgury and have some time to recover, chemotherapy is usually the next intervention. Many of us have had chemo, some of us more than once, so we can help guide you through the side effects. As you travel through your cancer experience, feel free to ask any questions. We are here for you. I was diagnosed stage 3 C in July 2015. There are many ladies on here who are still living a good life who have had Ovarian Cancer for a long time. Cancer is a chronic disease. I hope you have more good days than not so good days.

    Welcome Cholita,
    It sounds like you are in active treatment. How are you doing? I will soon be in treatment too. I am undergoing my 2nd reoccurence. We are still looking at treatment options. Feel free to ask any questions. We are here for you.

      That's what I'm waiting for right now, a treatment to start the chemo anytime soon

    Hey there, saw your question. I believe kalindria was on Doxil for awhile and she will probably see your question and respond but she comes on the site usually every two to four days. For a quicker response recommend the site Sisterhood of Ovarian Cancer Survivors on Facebook where you will have many ladies responding. I love my WhatNext but Sisterhood only has ladies and only ovarian cancer caregivers and survivors .

    Anyone been on Doxil? Was it combined with other drugs?

      I received Doxil combined with Gemzar and Navelbine. However, this was the6th, 7th and 8th drugs in 4 months, so I was pretty much whacked by that point. The worst would be hand and foot syndrome - which might be moderated by keeping hands and feet cold during and after infusion.

      I was on Doxil and Carboplatin for recurrent ovarian cancer. It was fine. I did experience some skin issues and mouth sores from the Doxil but nothing I couldn't handle. I was vigilant about avoiding the sun and tight clothing (I'd been well-warned) and avoided most of the worst side effects I read about.
