i have just recently found out by total fluke that I have what is presenting as ovarian cancer. I have a mass on my ovary and nodules throughout the perineteum area. I still have to wait for a CT scan of my chest and a biopsy of the tumour to have it staged and get a treatment plan. I am honestly still in shock. I have had no symptoms ( except urinary frequency-which is in hindsight). I guess I just wanted to introduce myself and touch base with some women who have been where I am.
Do you have any advice? Does anyone have any idea what causes this? What timeline am I looking at for getting these tests and treatment started. I’m freaking out that the cancer is growing and I feel like every second matters. However, I’m terrified of the treatment, chemo sounds brutal and the surgeries seem super intense. How do you handle everything? It’s so overwhelming.
Thanks for reading/listening.
