Hello my name is sue. I am 56. I Was diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic ovarian cancer in July and had 10 hour surgery lower and upper abdomen. 3 weeks hospital, infected collections and then lung drain. Big zipper scar but my surgeon was fantastic, a marvellous woman.
Now half way through 18 week chemo and loathing what it does to my body, bowel inflammation, hair loss, stomach cramping. All pervasive e haustion. Feel very out of control and not much continuity with oncologist so far due to holidays so nobody really has oversight of my case. I need to get that back on track but I also need to reach out to fellow sufferers to see if they too feel this powerlessness and confusion. Am on carboplatin and taxol.
Any advice on Sydney groups or how one van sit down with someone and have a decent conversation would be very much appreciated.
