Hi, I am new to this site but not new to Ovarian Cancer. I was diagnosed in Dec 2015 with Stage 111C high grade serous adenocarcinoma of ovary/fallopian tubes, invasive to cervix, vagina and rectum, at age 64. I started having symptons in Oct 2015, very tired, sore back and distended abdomen.I went to my family Dr., and was told to take GasX. He did schedule me for a colonoscopy. I had had one a few years before so I knew what to expect, but this time it was horrendous just taking the lovely orange drink the night before. I laid on the bathroom floor vomiting. Well needless to say the procedure was a bust, because I had a bowel blockage. This blockage is what saved me and my numerous trips to Emergency insisting I knew there was something wrong. The surgeon here wanted me to go into Hospice care, but thank heavens for my husband and children who insisted he get on the phone and get me to a cancer center and an OVGynycologist. I was ambulanced to Winnipeg Health Science Centre, operated on Jan 2016. Total ,abdominal hysterectomy-bilateraly salpingo-oophorectomy, with supracolic and infracolic omentectomy. resection of lesser omentum, appendectomy, with pertoneal stripping and rectosigmoid resection. Recovery was interesting, and I started aggressive weekly chemotherapy in early Feb. 2016, 16 weeks of Dose dense Carboplatin/Taxol. Thank goodness I never had to miss a session, even travelling from Kenora On., to Winnipeg every week . The people at Cancer Care Manitoba are amazing . There is light at the end of the tunnel, I have been in remission since June 7th 2016. I feel normal and am enjoying my life. Chemo was not pleasant but very doable and worth every minute of it. I still have my port in and get it flushed every month, and have 3 month check ups.
