Chemo treatments

Hello, after six months of feeling unwell I was diagnosed with Stage 3 High Grade Serous Ovarian Cancer. I am still reeling, having been in excellent health until now. Anyway, the side effects of the chemo have me feeling awful and when I contemplate going through this seven more times, in addition to surgery, I wonder whether it’s all worth it.

    Hello @alice_vanderkooy - sorry you are having to deal with all of this as well as the chemo side effects.
    Thank you for joining the site and we invite you to view the past posts so you can see how others have coped.
    And perhaps the DR team can assist you - be sure to let them know if your struggles with the chemo.
