Hi there! It has been a while since being here quite often in the past. Jan here.....almost 17 years now and a stg 4. No recurrence to date. Just here to spread hope and encouragement if in need of it. Be well all.......JanView Thread
Please try to see a good gyn if possible and forget that waiting for the new year stuff my friend. Now , I know you probably could wait but not a good idea in my opinion. I was dx. with stg 4 ovca 16 years ago and have been there and done that so to speak. I was one of the lucky ones who managed to get through it all complete hysterectomy , chemo and all. Waiting is not a good idea in my opinion. My input for you. Be well. JanView Thread
Jan here. Just stopping in to wish all a good healthy new year. I am a stage 4 ovarian cancer survivor of 15 years now. Always around to spread hope and encouragement if I can . Be well and take care of you, Jan View Thread
Yes, please be concerned as some of those symptoms are of ovarian cancer. That does not mean you have it of course. You need to have a thorough pelvic exam and a vaginal -ultra sound. If perhaps ovca is suspected a CA-125 blood test and then your gyn will go from there. A cat scan may be necessary as well. Ovca does not have to run in your family for you to have a dx. Do not let this doctor brush you off as this sometimes does happen. Be persistent. Be well, Jan (a 15 year survivor of ovca)View Thread
