      PLEASE PLEASE Go to a Gynecologic Oncologist Surgeon!!!!!!! I had Stage IV Ovarian Cancer and was immediately referred to this Specialist.....THEY ARE THE DOCTOR SPECIALIST that was created for us OC patients. Mine removed a 39 POUND tumor, my ovaries etc, (I'd had hysterectomy at 45) Then this specialist scraped all the cancer he could see from my intestines, urethrea, Removed a fat pad, and scraped the others. A PET CT Scan done six weeks later showed he'd removed ALL THE CANCER....... But he said that some cells could still be floating... We then did Six 28 day Cycles of strong chemo... Day 1 was an I/V infusion, Days 2 and 8 were I/P infusions directly into my abdomine.... I received meds for nausia, and other things that dealt with reactions. Then after completing that... he asked me to do strong chemo by I/V infusion once a month for 12 months. We did 13 months, after a miscount) Another PET CT Scan showed Cancer Free....Then I did rechecks every 3 months for 18 month, then ever 6 months for five years. Now ...(THIRTEEN YEARS LATER) Still cancer free.... I was 62 at DX, I just celebrated 76th birthday last week. I remember after surgery I was given six months to live immediately after surgery) I told God I was terrified.... instantly my fear left me. I knew a peace I'd never felt before. Then I asked God to take my hand and lead me to where He wanted me to be..... He led me here to WhatNext trying to help you!!!

      Saw4750,
      First, what's "dany"?

      Second, please go to one or more of the medical schools we mentioned.
      I don't have the same cancer you do, but I learned during my treatments that large medical schools offer surgical specialists in several types of cancers, rather than "just" general surgeons. By the above story, we see how important that is!

      God bless you all! This is a hard road, but I feel God is walking it with me, too!
