Hi from Jolan
I'm 44 and was diagnosed in July after returning from a 10 week overseas trip. I was admitted to hospital a week after my return. I have advanced ovarian cancer. I also have another condition called acromegaly which was diagnosed when I was in my early 20s. Acromegaly is the adult form of gigantism. Think of Lurch in The Addams Family or the kids movie with giant in in it. I've got chemo brain still!
I ended up with a bowel obstruction which led to a colostomy. I've had 6 rounds of chemo and I'm waiting to see my oncologist on 12 th January for to decide where to next. Hopefully a PETscan and then surgery. I was in hospital for 3 months.
It is very scary not knowing the future. I just keep praying everyday that I will get through this.
