    Hoping you are doing ok today @Ovarian2019... has your DR team been able to address the side effects issues with you?

    @Ovarian2019 my diagnosis is very similar to you; I was in great physical, mental health; always had check ups etc.  This was a total shock to me as well.  I just don't understand why there isn't testing to detect Ovarian Cancer earlier.......75% of the cases are diagnosed at Stage 3 or 4.........sad.  I'm so sad to hear that you are having allergic reactions to the drugs.  i hope this gets sorted out for you.

  • Had my had my second chemo....last week....I pray that it doesn’t spread... that’s my fear.
