You're in my thoughts all the time, but especially today.
hi my name is lisa 23yrs from ireland i would like 2 be ur friendJust a quick note to say hi!
Just a quick note to say hi! Hi Mel! Not much to say about my ovca journey other than it was touch and go in the begining . Stage 4 is not too good for sure. Had the complete hesterectomy and then into chemo . Mostly taxol back then. I had mets to the liver. Chemo took care of it pretty much. All that began in Aug. of 1996...I was 58 at the time of dx. No symptoms. Who knew? Had some spotting one day and straight to the doctor and after tests they had me in surgery in hardly 2 weeks. Very scary . Who knows with ovarian cancer? I am here to spread hope and encouragement to who ever I can. Hugs....Jan
Thinking about you and wondering how you are feeling and how things are going.
yay! for you and the end of cylce 6!!
now to focus on feeling better!
So happy for you!!!! Hope you are well!
You have to have someone be with you,if possible,especially in the hospital.On August 9th,2 years ago my Mom was having her debulking surgery.She was in ICU after,she started having problems,so they closed her up.She was in recovery,they told me!They lied!Since I had a bad feeling and they refused to let me see her,I snuck in.My Mom's blood pressure and heart rate was sky high.She was within minutes of having a heart attack!I raised hell,within seconds tons of Doctors ran in.I thought I lost her,but I saved her! I thank God everyday for that extra year and 5 days with her! In my opinion,there are no room for mistakes when it comes to a life! In my prayers,Jen
Just a quick note to say hi! I thought I was young when diagnosed (I was 33), but you got me beat. I admire your spirit and that your still going to school too! In 2003 I was told I had 6mth to 4yrs to live and I'm still here, hang in there, your fighting a good fight.
saw your post about jewelry and I am interested. I live in the United States, so I don't know if that is a problem. I am also on facebook...so you can either send me an email to ***@**** or find me on facebook..my name is julie states...don't think there is anyone else with my name but I live in San Angelo Texas.

Just a quick note to say hi! Good luck with fighting your case, it does take a long time but is worth it in the end, it is happening too often and the medical profession should be accountable for their actions or lack of them !. I wrote in my journal about it and my solicitor has just settled my case out of court , they admitted delaying my surgery by at least 5 months . Anyways best of luck and take care .
Hi Mel, good to see your feeling a little better! keep smiling!
Hi Mel, Saw your mood, hope everything is okay. Drop me a note when you can. I'm interested to know how you are doing. Take care.
Saw your "mood", hope everything is going well!
Thank you! Hi...I've been meaning to respond to your other thread. I'm going to have a port put in aug. and 3 ipiv treatments in the fall. thanks for the discussion you brought up about it...and I'm glad yours is 1/2 way done...is that right? All the best,
sorry have not been on for a while I cant belive whats been happening with you.Keep strong you will get through this sorry cant help with you question but if you need moral support I am here.
Haven't seen you post in awhile. I hope the treatments are going well and you are feeling fine.
Hi Mel, as you can see by my more recent thread, I'm not in remission after all. I was so excited when I read my CT scan report that I just expected it to mean I was free of cancer for a while.
Check out my post about not being in remission,
How are you doing, are you still on chemo and is this your first go- around with chemo?
It's awesome to be talking to someone in Australia, or anywhere outside the US, computers are so cool!
You deserve a big bear hug! Saw your profile. Hope you feel better after some good sleep. Always praying for you! Hugs, Colleen
I was wondering how you are recovering from your surgery? Have you seen the Dr. about your follow up treatment for the recurrence? I am very interested to know what your plan of action will be.

Just a quick note to say hi! Just wanted to wish you luck!
I.m new to the online forum, so sorry if this is wrong. My fiance was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2006 at age 26. It reoccurred last year and I just can't find any other people our age with this problem. We are currently cancer free after this second round of chemo.
Hi was wondering how you got on at doctors??? I have kept checking all day to see if your ok Please let me know!! I have got lots of info from your questions to the doctors. I have a scan tomorrow I am praying it shows no cysts.Last year I had one straight away after op but was not concerened as biopsy was good. Now I think differant.I hope your ok.Bye for now
I didn't think my note was nasty, and if you took it that way, I apologize.
I was the only one on the thread who said borderline doesn't mean cancer, and the only one who quoted the 4% statistic -- well, I think you can see why I would take it personally and feel it was directed at me. There are others who thought the same.
I understand what you are dealing with. It's all happened very quickly and is very scary, especially when you are young. Just remember that there are many, many wonderful women on this forum who consider us lucky!
I wasn't angry at all, just I guess a little sad. I wish you all the best, truly. I hope everything comes out well for you.
I will keep you posted and please let me know how you get on at doctors too. I feel braver as the more I understand what I am dealing with. Thanks for your help you have been brillant
Thanks for getting back in touch. I really need to see a gyno-onc to tell you more.My doctor who performed my surgery is not one I thought he was as I just persumed he would be sound really stupid but I am all new to this.I thought when he told me he removed the tumour that was it.What can I say everyday I learn something new next week I have appointment with oncologist not gyno I have to go to mainland Greece for that.I will at later date.I will be able to tell you if it was with or without nonivasive implants.Good luck with everything you seem so brave I hope that comes with time. I dont feel at all brave.Talk soon
Good luck with your Doctor's appt. tomorrow. I hope you hear some positive news. Julie
Hi. Thought it would be better to post this as a note.
Yes, the doctor on the site says LMPs can turn invasive, meaning they can metastisize. Even benign tumors can be invasive. Cancerous is something else.
I'm obviously no expert on this except for what I've researched and what I've been told. I know your main concern is your fertility and I wish you all the best. It's a hard decision, but I'm sure everything will work out fine.
There's a lot of support in this forum, as you already know, and a lot of ladies that have tons of information!
Mel..Just came across your profile etc. I am so sorry to hear of your troubles...just know that we are here to help you through all of this. You are young and strong...that is really a good thing and I know you can get through all of this. I'm thinking and praying for you!
Saw your post and am sorry that the Dr's have not been able to give you answers. Sometimes Dr's forget that we are humans not pin cushions or a lab experiment. You are so young and deserve to live a young person's life...full of care free fun and no worries. Good Luck and keep us up to date. Julie
Hello Mel, I saw your "mood" and it touched me. I can feel your frustration and rightly so, no one should have to go through this but especially some one as young as you. I sincerely hope "they" can find some answers and come up with a plan of attack to help you. Sending you best wishes and positive thoughts and hope. Regards...Janet
