I was diagnosed stage 1c ovca in 07/08, conservative surgery, 6 rounds of carbo, got pregnant and gave birth in 03/10 and just had a full hysterectomy/staging last Monday(08/10). Still waiting on the path report, but there was no evidence of disease and the washings were clear, so fingers crossed. I am 29 years old and I am concerned about being on hormone replacement therapy for a long period of time. However, I know that menopausal symptoms will be almost unbearable without the therapy. Is there a heightened risk of recurrence due to HRT in regards to ovarian cancer? There is a lot of information about the general population and HRT, but I'm finding it difficult to understand how HRT affects ovca patients. Any information would be great. Thanks so much.
