Hi all, I hope it's OK I made a new discussion topic, as I did a search and didn't find much on what I'm looking for. I've posted on here a couple of times but have been reading along the way. My mom was diagnosed with stage 3B OC in 2017 (brca neg). She has just had a CT and was told it's likely a recurrence as the doctor see several enlarge pelvic lymph nodes. We are all sad about this, as she's been doing so well with 3 years of NED. Like everyone, we were so hoping it just didn't return. So, he has told her she will likely be looking at chemo, maybe surgery. I'm worried for her, especially now with this awful Covid in the mix.
Has anyone had treatment for this type of recurrence, or had heard of this recurrence type? I know everyone recurs differently so not sure where to get some help, or support while I wait to speak to the oncologist myself. Can lymph nodes enlarge for any other reason? She has been under a high amount of personal stress and I wonder if that could at all be related instead of cancer.
Thank you, all the best.
