2 days ago · Rare cancer: ovarian clear cell carcinoma in Gynecologic Cancers

Hello! I also was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, but 3c, over a year ago and was treated at Mayo, AZ. I have been in remission for 9 months. I wonder if we were treated by the same extraordinary oncologists. Don’t think I can mention their names. Your great attitude is what helps your recovery. I am also striving towards those goals and a metabolic life style, as recommended at Mayo. Keep up the good work! I am on metformin, how about you?

You are definitely not alone, Karen! I also have friends who cannot find the right shoes (so to speak!). Also, those who ask how you are coping then immediately go into a lengthy description of the cousin of a friend whose stepson’s wife’s sister’s condition. Hello? I am here! I decided that I need not spend my precious time with them.

A hysterectomy sounds menacing, but truly it is not a big deal! Many women today have it done after they are over child bearing age, simply to limit the probability of various types of gynecological cancers. Mine was done on a Friday, I went home the following morning and needed no medication. The scarring is minimal. Good luck!

Hi Rochelle. My two gyn oncologists at Mayo, AZ are Dr.John Camoriano and Dr. Magrina, both exceptionally well qualified, on top of all new therapies and truly magnificent individuals. They are responsive, answer my emails promptly and truly care about their patients. Dr. Camoriano sat with me during my first bout with chemo. He wanted to be certain all was going well and that I was okay. Even after completing my treatment about eight months ago, they still check in on me on a regular basis and request the results of my monthly CA125 and HE4,S tests from my home in Hawaii. What more can one ask of their doctors?

I would love to give you the names of my two oncologists at Mayo, AZ. but I am not sure if this is appropriate. Can we hear from someone at Mayo as to what the correct protocol is? Merci!

I suggest you ask for a HE4,S test as well. Some oncologists think it is a better indicator of cancer.

I like your advice about getting a gyn oncologist rather than an Ob/gyn as they are specifically trained to deal with cancer. I had two fabulous gyn oncologists at Mayo and am currently in my 7th month of recovery from stage 3C ovarian and doing very well. The eyelashes and eyebrows are back and hair is on its way. I look normal! I have energy and an appetite. Life can be good after cancer!
