Let's beat cancer sooner

Ovarian cancer CT scan results

5 Mar 2018 15:48

Hi everyone,

Had my scan results today which showed only a slight progression in the cancer. The maintenance Avastin has obviously done a great job!

It's now time to go back on chemo to keep things under control. The new combination of chemo means I shouldn't loose my hair this time, which is great news!

I just wanted to share my news and encourage anyone who has recently been diagnosed with stage 4 ovarian cancer.  Although the future remains uncertain, I'm doing ok and feeling positive.

I'm so pleased you are staying so positive Jan. My partner Sue was diagnosed with ovarian cancer last year and is now ok (of course touching wood as I say this), we are both big believers in knowing that the power of the mind and positivity goes a long way in healing the body! Our thoughts and positive vibes are with you xx

Thank you for your reply. Yes, I agree that positivity definitely goes a long way. I have had my bad days, but on the whole I have remained extremely positive and as fit and healthy as possible!

I'm so pleased that your partner is doing so well.. long may it continue!

Great news Velvet, as a fellow ovarian sufferer I know it's always nerve wracking waiting for those blooming blood and scan results! 

Keep up the good work!

Hi Hazel

Thank you! The waiting for results never gets any easier does it?

If you don't mind me asking, how is your treatment going?

Hello Velvet, of course not.  I finished all my treatment in March 2016 with my final (I hope) chemo, and am now on 4 monthly checkups so am a lot further down the line than you.  I had my first diagnosis in 2012 followed by total hysterectomy and 6 chemos, then a recurrence in 2015 followed by a second op to remove new tumour and part of bowel, plus another 6 chemos.  Lost my hair the first time but like you had a different combination of chemo drugs the second time so wasn't a baldie that time.  

Hope your forthcoming treatment goes well, Velvet, keep that good attitude! 

Sending hugs, Hazel xx

Thanks for your reply... You certainly have been through a lot of treatment!! I wasn't suitable for surgery, which at the time was disappointing, but at least I haven't had that to cope with.

I'm so pleased that you are doing so well.. long may that continue!

My next chemo should be starting in a couple of weeks, so fingers crossed I respond as well this time! Thank you for your good wishes.

Jan xx
