At 49 years of age I was diagnosed with Stage 1C Serous Carcinoma Aug 16, 2016. I recieved 6 months of Carboplatin and Taxol - every 3 weeks. I had every symptom ( I listened to my body) I said to my family Dr. It whispers his reply is No? Well, I am telling you as a female it does. Yep, fired this Dr.! I now have a lovely female Dr. that understands the female anatomy. …My symptoms were extreme fatigue, feeling full after eating and then vomiting, peeing my pants, back pain and just over all unwell. When I went to my Family Dr. I said "I feel like my abdomen is going to fall out" my tumor was 10cm in July 29th and within 3 weeks grew to 15cm. Insurance co. pushed me. Never again.
I have been in and out of the hospital the last 7 months - WBC, Leukocytes, Platelets all extremely low, lung, kidney and urine infections. Why? they do not know. Run down … My thoughts. Usually they are right my thoughts that is. I am afraid to return to work - I work in an environment similar to a hospital. Stressful job and high expectations. I am the only one that does my job.
If anyone else has been in this situation - I would love to hear from you.
Wishing everyone all the best.... Stay Well....
