First let me say I am so very sorry, truly, to hear about your sister. This sounds like she has had quite the struggle and it has to be hard on her. And you. And her whole family. My heart goes out to you all. So, one thing to clarify. Is this ovarian cancer or gastric cancer that has spread? Meaning the tumor in her ovaries is the same kind of tumor that was involved in her gastric cancer and not the type typically found in ovarian cancer? Does that make sense? Regardless, it sounds like her cancer is aggressive. It's unfortunate that the doctors are not agreeing or conferring and giving mixed messages putting you in a position of feeling like you have to choose yourself. At this time, professional guidance for the best outcome is in order!
My mother in law had chemo first because they felt it wouldn't be easy to get all of her tumors (ovarian cancer is a seeding cancer). But know another who had surgery first and then chemo. Would a Gyn/Onc be able to give her a second opinion?
Hi Alexandra. I am so sorry your sister is going through this! She is lucky to have you advocating for her!
I wish I had some words of wisdom but I don't. I would only suggest doing a bit of research and then seeking out a third and possibly fourth opinion if you are still undecided.
I wholeheartedly wish the best for her!
Hi there. Was thinking about you and your sister. I am wondering if there is any update. hugs
