Hi Im Dionne
Hi everyone, Im 49 and I was diagnosed November 2017 after being told by 3 doctors it was IBS as I was suffering from bloating I ended up at the ER for the 4th time they discovered I had ascites. Test results came back positive for cancer. Then it was a whirl wind of doctors and tests. Ive had 6 rounds of chemo, lost my hair which was hard to deal with. The Tumor shrunk that much it could no longer be seen on the ct scan(it was 17cm). I then had to wait 4 weeks before debulking surgery which was stressful and having me going on anxiety meds. I already had a hysterectomy in 2001 so all I had was 1 ovary. My Surgeon who is one of the best, Dr Greg Gard, was wonderful. I am still recovering from surgery and have another round of chemo to go. Its been so hard to deal with everything that I know myself Im depressed and suffer from anxiety. I spend most days crying and not wanting to see anyone. I have 4 older sisters and I keep asking why me. Sounds terrible I know. I have 2 grown boys (30 and 20) neither are married yet and a wonderful husband. I really want to see my boys get married and have kids. I want to be a grandma. I have read a lot of post on here and you are all wonderful and inspiring women. Everyone keeps telling me to think positive because everything has been going really well but right now its just hard to do that. Sorry for if I sound all over the place but Im terrified..
