I have just had my 4th round of CARBO/TAXOL and next up is surgery for me on March 10th. I will be having a complete hysterectomy and there is one tumor in my abdominal wall near my rib cage that may require surgical mesh to close the wall.
My original CT scan showed pseudochirrosis of my liver and multiple enlarged lymph nodes and various sized tumors. The recent scan showed no abnormalities in my organs or lymph nodes and significant shrinkage of the tumors so that is great news.
My questions for the group are: of those of you have had the debulking surgery what was your healing experience? What can I reasonably expect for length of time needed to heal? What were your worst days like? What, if anything, did you find most helpful?
Thanks in advance to those of you who share your experiences.
