Hi. i was diagnosed with 4th stage sessile ovarian cancer almost 5 years ago. I started to notice issues with my breathing early July. One thing led to another and I received my diagnosis on September 2nd. i had surgery on September 25 and started chemo mid-October. Chemo was tough. i was on a 21 day cycle with a full 8-hr treatment the first Friday and then a 4-hr treatment (without nausea) the next Friday. During my surgery, i had a port inserted into my abdomen. The chemo was the usual through IV on my wrist and then the last part of the 8 hr treatment was through the port. They'd hook it up and then tilt my bed this way and that to swish my special concoction around. I am grateful for the care i received and credit my medical team for my survival. Statistics with disease survival seem to listed in the 1 year, 5 year rate so I am particularly looking forward to being past the upcoming 5 year anniversary!
