    Hi there and welcome! I apologize for the lateness of my welcome but I just had my knee replaced and have been recuperating while snowed in here in Washington state. Crazy weather!

    Very sorry to hear of your diagnosis. In the early days, it's often overwhelming and confusing. Please take time to calm and focus yourself. It will help going forward.

    While you're here at WhatNext.com, check out the questions and experiences of other folks here. You can find people who've had the same cancer, surgeries, chemotherapy and experiences should you wish. It's often reassuring to know others have been through what you're facing and thrived. I also recommend the PINBOARD - there are often humorous or uplifting posts that can make your day. Definitely worth checking out.

    In the meantime, I'm here if you have any questions or want to chat.

    All the best!

    Welcome ShellV,.
    I am 61 years old, stage 3 C. I suspect you are receiving chemotherapy. How is it going? Many of us on this site have had chemotherapy so we can help with any concerns or questions you may have. I have had chemo in 2015 when I was originally diagnosed and last year when I had a reoccurence. I have more experience than I hoped I would have. Wishing you the best! We want to help.

    Hello and welcome, we are happy to have you with us. Please feel free to join in the conversations. Here is a link to our cancer dx page for your type of cancer. Take a look at it to get you started on some information. You will notice at the bottom of that page 4 of our active users who have had that journey already, you may wish to contact them for their experience and wisdom. Also, I encourage you to go to the questions page now by clicking on the questions tab at the top of the page and post what is the most pressing issue you have right now. This will introduce you to the community and get you started with the help you need right now.


    There are also subtypes listed on this page to narrow down the type of cancer to match your dx. Also, if you can take a few minutes and fill in some details of your journey so far, it will help others as they try to answer questions for you, it also helps others as they search through the database to find someone like themselves. Confirming your email will allow you to receive updates and notices from the site when someone answers your questions or writes on your wall.

    Hi ShellV, welcome to the WhatNext site. I am a fellow survivor who came to WhatNext shortly after being diagnosed with stage IIIC ovarian cancer in 2013 at the age of 66. I needed to connect with other survivors and find out about the journey ahead. I am guessing you are still having chemo treatments at present. How are you doing? Everyone responds differently to chemo. One of the most common side effects is the fatigue so be kind to yourself and take things “ one day at a time”.

    Look the site over and visit the pinboard. Reach out with any questions. We are all here to support you. Wishing you better days ahead and here to talk anytime.
