    Updated Mar 30, 2013

    My last Taxol treatment was June 15, 2012. I knew going into the treatment that I might have some problems with neuropathy or some tingling in my fingers and toes and bone pain. My NP and Oncologist told me they would start me on a medication on Gabapentin that would help. By the time I was finished of four rounds of Taxol I was taking high d…

    The last year has been a pretty good one. My most recent CT Scan came back clear, which is always good. I am still in remission. I still don’t want to use the word “cured” as I don’t really know if I will ever be considered cured.

    I did have a scare last spring, that may or may not be related to my cancer diagnosis. I was having major lower …

    During my May (2009) visit, my doctor told me my post-treatment checkups would no longer need to be PET or CT scans. He said instead he would simply watch for markers in my blood work. I let him know the markers in my blood were never above normal even when my cancer was at its worst and would therefore not provide the information necessary to d…

    Keeping up with those yearly appointments and going to support groups to help others going through what you went through when it happened to you is important. It not only helps the newly diagnosed, but it helps those of us who are the survivors too.

    Today was my 4 month check up with my gynecological oncologist. He complimented me on how well I was doing and after examining me said that everything felt and looked good. He always has a CA125 blood test done and today was no different. It was just hard for them to draw blood. I have had to have so much blood work done since being diagnose…

    It’s going on another year of labs and doctors. I’m 70 now, and thought these were the “golden years.” Nothing golden about them for me. My lack of platelets and Coumadin leave my body looking like I get beaten up every day!

    I have wonderful doctors, and sometimes they get as frustrated as I am, as I have a disease without a cure, little tr…

    My husband was alone when he was told it was cancer. I had a great GYN, Dr. Steven Lewis in Gaffney who sent me to Dr, Hunter at Gibbs the next day. After major debulking I was given diagnosis of stage III-C Primary Peritoneal Cancer which is treated just like Ovarian. I was told I was going to be hit as hard as I could stand and hope for two …
