Wed, May 8 12:02pm · Video Q&A about Gynecologic Cancers in Gynecologic Cancers

Oh! I was diagnosed at 3C three yeats ago,had a hysterectomy and carbo/taxol chemo treatment for 6 months and now just carbo(almost finished) for a recurrent spot. I am exhausted but the spot seems to be disappearing. “Irreparable harm”? Please explain. Will I ever regain the strength I once had? I am being encouraged to exercise. Feel so weak!

I know 180 is too high. As a fasting number I hope for 80-130. This morning I got 120. Thanks.

Correction: I did not notice that 160 was your NONfasting number . I don’t know. Ask for a more knowledgeable response!

I would say so. I have diabetes too and my fasting top number is 130 and lowest number is 80. I have been slacking off because I also have cancer but my doctors have been saying yout A1c is a ‘little’ high. This morning I tested before eating and the number was 180. Time to cut back on sweets,esp. chocolate.🌚

Leann: Glad you got to travel-a perk-up. I have had 2 infusions with just Carboplatin no Taxol. They give me anti-nausea drips first and I have had no nausea and no loss of appetite but my brain power is slipping. I keep forgetting names/words and can’t do complex processes (I have a sweater knitting project going and can’t seem to process the directions!). As mentioned before I do not have good balance all of a sudden so have gotten a walker but have not used it yet as I usually have my husband to hang on to. Trying to come to terms with being a changed (old) person. Often tired. Well… onward. Susu2

I hadn’ read your earlier posts when I read this.You have had a long haul. I’m not clear about what “low grade cancer” is -if it is Stage 4, how can it be low grade? My main symptom now is fatigue. Still trying to get out,have friends, be active. My daughters are on the other coast! I have an attentive husband and a great local cancer center for treatment, I live near Seattle.

Let’s stay in touch..How did it happen that you didn’t have surgery at first diagnosis?

Unfortunately my ovarian cancer was discovered at Stage 3C and now it has metasticized to a small spot in my abdomen (not attached to an organ) and I am having chemo again. I had no symptoms for the first occurrence,just a suspicious doctor. BE GLAD IT HAS BEEN FOUND THIS EARLY IN YOU. Get treatment. 🌹
