Ovarian Cancer: Anyone have trouble getting diagnosed?
@shesmikey, great questions. I think you should repeat these questions to your OB Gyn as well. It sounds like you are getting all the tests that are used to detect ovarian cancer. See the American Cancer Society's list here:
I'm also bringing in @starko @lynann99 @rochellewisner @odette and @susu2 to this discussion as they may be able to share their experiences about diagnostic testing and questions to ask.
Shesmikey, it's important that you feel confident in the care that you're getting. Keep asking questions and don't forget that you can also ask for a second opinion. Are you home now? How are you feeling?

I think it would be wise to pursue care at a high-volume cancer center if you have access to one. My care was provided by one of the top four centers in the country with a second opinion from one of the others. I feel confident in their advice. You are very young and you should be looking for the best care possible. Write if you have questions. My particular diagnosis is associated with endometriosis and is a rare ovca.
