Hi I'm Sharon
Hello everyone, Well I am just passed the five year mark and know that I am so lucky. It was a shock, as seems to be the common thread, no symptoms but had two tumours the size of rockmelons (always the over achiever) and a CA125 of 7500, so they thought the worse. Luckily it was contained and I had a radical hysterectomy and removal of lots of other stuff and follow up chemo, weekly for 20 weeks. So I have some chemo survival handy hints and am always here to lend an ear and to help anyone on this journey. I didn't find this site when I was going through treatment. I have just had genetic testing done, I don't have any paternal history (think it is much like the second last scene from Mama Mia where they all jump up and say "I'll have a third but without the jump up bit..) my maternal side is friendly and happy to help but there is no cancer anywhere down that line. Having a daughter makes me panic, maybe more than parenting, but maybe not, parental guilt is a funny thing. Anyway, signing off with I'm here OK!!
