Sorry I haven’t been posting lately, I was spending too much time reading posts on multiple sites like the Facebook group “Sisterhood of Ovarian Cancer Survivors” and all the negative postings were getting me down so I only look when I want to find out about a specific treatment or problem. I guess that’s kind of selfish but I have to be careful I don’t get too depressed. I have 3C high grade, I’m 2 1/2 years since diagnosed and am facing my second recurrence. I’m being considered for the Herceptin trial as I have the Her2 gene. I’m excited about this as not too many ovarian patients have that gene, it was only used previously for breast cancer patients. It’s worked well for them so they think why not work for ovarian. I have tumors on my liver, kidney, aortic lymph and abdomen. If you haven’t had genomic testing I recommend you do as it shows what treatments are the best per your chemistry. I pray everyday for all my teal sisters and private message me if you don’t see me on here. Love and hugs to you all.
I’m trying to keep positive, my daughter has been my research queen and has me using essential oils, charlottes web hemp oil, juicing with a Norwalk juicer, taking immunocal protein, opc antioxidant, and green superfood alkaline detox. So far my cancer marker, ca125 went from 4600 to 1150 a 75% decrease after just 3 chemo treatments so my doctor said to keep doing whatever I’ve been doing! Thanks for your concern, Dale
My name is Dale, I was diagnosed 6-16-16. I have ovarian cancer, peritoneal carcinomatosis and high grade carcinoma. I was a healthy 64 year old and I did not have any symptoms until the day before I was diagnosed, sore stomach then abdominal swelling and 6 pound weight gain in one day. Had to have 3 paracentesis performed in a 2 week period removing 6 liters of fluid, 2 liters then 4 liters. Once my chemo started that went away. (yesterday was my 5th treatment). I am tolerating the chemo well, no nausea. Thank God!! My plan is 9 weeks of chemo, surgery then 9 more weeks of chemo. I live in the Charlotte area so I go to Levine Cancer Institute.
