A little about me :
i was diagnosed in Sept 2015 with Stage 4 OV C. I had 6 rounds of Carbo and Taxil chemos in 2016. My tumors couldn’t be removed so in 2016 I faced my prognosis and prepared for the final journey. Then in October 2016 my oncologist at Princess Margaret said he could get it all. My surgery was Nov 30/16 and he removed the tumors along with removing the end of my tailbone. Then in May 2017 the disease reocurred. I just had chemo # 11 two days ago.
During all of this I got Avascular necrosis in my right knee and right hip from being on Dexamethazone for too long. I had a knee replacement in March 2017. I also need a hip replacement but have to finish chemo first.
Oh I wish I was finished but I also have an ileostomy as the result of Ulcerative Colitis.
I’ve been living with extreme weight bearing pain because of my hip. My quality of life has changed and I have tried so hard to stay positive. I have the odd wobble and I sometimes feel alone. But I’m surrounded by a loving and supportive family. My husband quit his job to look after me so I’m blessed despite having all this to face.
Thats it for now. I’m grateful that this online is here. And I have already looked at some of the content.
Thank you for reading my story.
