      Hi Mari - thank you so much for asking. Day 3 post chemo was awful. I'm just so anxious. Not tired enough to sleep but tired enough to just feel mentally miserable. At this moment I'm hanging on. I've been in touch with doctor on call and I think we got the meds kinda of squared away.

    Has somebody been to the Prentice women's Hospital or Illinois Masonic Hospital in Chicago for cancer care? If so how was your experience?

      I just had surgery three weeks ago today at Prentice! I start chemo Oct 23. The hospital is beautiful and I have all good things to say about it. This is a recurrence as I had ovarian cancer in 2009. I am VERY scared for IP chemo! The staff and everyone have all been kind. I feel like I'm in the best of care with them.

      Mari IP chemo is intraperitoneal chemo. The chemo will go directly in my pelvic area with a port I had put in there. I've read what can be expected.
