    I hope your friend does well. Just try to be there for her. She'll have good and bad days during treatment. I was diagnosed at Stage IV, the cancer had metasticized to my lymph system. I responded well to treatment and am coming up on my 2nd year "canniversary". I wish your friend the very best.

    Procedure or Surgery (Debulking surgery): I had the DaVinci computerized surgery which was terrific. I experienced little surgical pain afterwards and no complications. I was blessed !

    Oh No (Diagnosed): Cancer found "by accident" at stage four. My endochronologist had ordered an ultrsound of my thyroid. the centinal lymph node was found then. I think it was as difficult for her to tell me the news as it was to hear it ! The cancer had spread to lymph system, no organs, fortunately. Later tested positive for BCRA 1 genetic mutation.
