He has been one of the team of resident organists at the famous Tower Ballroom since , a position he took up at the age of 16 straight from school. I thought my weight had finally caught up with me. The carboplatin I have had before, 17 years ago, but the taxol is new and it can cause an allergic reaction within the 1st 15 minutes of getting it if a person were to have one, so they have to watch me for the 1st 15 minutes once they give it to me. The biopsy showed that it was stage 1a. The Spring show is designed to appeal to all ages.

She contined with Chemo. I also got her to go to a MD. They said she is now in remission. Her and my Dad went to Florida for the winter and she had continued treatment down there. Both the Chemo and the Vitamin infusions and suppliments.
It was very hard to watch my mom go through the suffering. Plus she is the type of person who feels like she was a burden on us. She is such a caregiver,so it was hard for her to be the one in need. She was stage 3c when she was diagosed. Im trying not to worry about when it will come back. Will she have the strength to do it again? Will I have the strenth to support her?
Its always in the back of my mind. I also wanted to say the vitamins and infusions definatly helped with her energy level. Im more into natural health than her. Trying to build up your immune system naturally. She worked full time in a sewing factory kept house for herself and our aging mother. Took care of her grandson when he got home from school.

Her primary care told her she was getting older and to slow and that maybe it was her nerves. Marissa My name is Marissa, 47, married with a 15 year old daughter. It was a shock! Pap and mammogram were good along wth the usual tests. In June, we went home for good to our home country, the Philippines. I felt good,and I was slimmer.
I thought I was just having the "usual" loose bowels. I did not go to the doctor right away. Then one night, it was so painful, then I vomited. I decided to see a Gastroenterologist because I thought it was my stomach. He felt a mass in the lower left side of my abdomen. He sent for an ultrasound right away. It was an 8 cm.
I have had my uterus removed in , negative of any cancer. It was my left ovary. My oncologist advised that the mass be removed right away. I was scheduled for surgery two days after Nov. Pathology confirmed, it was a burst left ovary. My oncologist and surgeon removed my omentum, both ovaries and fallopian tubes. My CA was I pray that it stays that way forever I wish they make the ultrasound test a routine test just like Pap Smear. I could not help but think that maybe I would have known earlier that my ovay was not normal anymore and not go thru Chemo if I was in the Philippines.
I lived and worked as a teacher in the US for 8 years, had very good health insurance, but was never offered this test by my OBGYNE there, although he knew my history. Now I know Ovarian cancer can not be detected by just having Pap Smear. Let us all be vigilant about our health and pray for each other God bless us all Donna Last summer at Hopkins I had surgery to remove 2 ft of my right colon due to stage 1 colon cancer.
He told me that from the cat scan I have inflamed lymph nodes, Im scared. If theres anything there do I got back to the colon surgeon or a gyn surgeon? Scared Nurisse I woke up May 10, and went to pee like I do every morning. I had blood in my urine. I got so scared. My stomach had been the size of a pregnant woman in her 9th month all of April.
My doctor didn't know what was wrong. After tests to see if I was having internal bleeding, because I was taking blood thinners due to blood clots in my lungs and one in my right leg. I was going to get an ultra sound done later that morning on the 10th. I looked in the mirror and I was white as a sheet.
I am a light skinned black woman. I said a prayer. But I was so scared. I brushed my teeth, washed up, got dressed as quick as I could. Drove to my grandmother's house shaking all the way and praying. I made it there in about 8 minutes. She lives about 15 to 20 minutes away. Got up the stairs and rung the bell. As soon as she answered the door I told her to call emergency I had to got to the hospital,and that there was blood in my urine.
I sat nervous and waiting, trying to stay calm because I have panic attacks. The EMT team came took me to the hospital. I peed again and the urine was the color of cranberry juice.
The nurse said I could have a urinary tract infection. I was just scared. I waited in the room with my mother, grandmother and aunt. The doctor came in got my history and told me they were going to do a ct scan. Another nurse appeared and told me to drink this fluid for the test. I took the test. The doctor came back in and told me I had ovarian cancer. Cried my eyes out. They released me and I went home to my grandmother's. I was so uncomfortable and scared.
I went to my doctor the next afternoon. I was admitted to the hospital that evening. I met my Oncologist. She told me I had Ovarian Cancer stage 4 and ascites. She also told me there was too much disease to do surgery. I had tests done. There were tumors in both ovaries, on my abdominal wall, one in my liver, on on my spine, and a bunch in my omentum. The next morning I got my stomach tapped. They took 6 liters of fluid off. I had to have a blood transfusion because my hemoglobin was at 7. I had chemo after that.
Had an allergic to the chemo so they stopped it. The next morning I met with my doctor, she changed the chemo drugs and I had the chemo the next day. I got my stomach tapped one more time. They took 6 liters that time also. I was released after being in the hospital for 10 days. When I got home my son put me on an alkaline diet. No meat, dairy or grains. Fruits and Vegetables only. I had my stomach tapped the week after I got home. They took 4 liters that time.
And that was the last time I had to have it tapped. I got chemo again 21 days after the first time. I was on a 21 day cycle. I found out my CA tumor marker was 16, When I had the test again a month later it was 13, I started taking alkaline supplements and an immune booster, so I wouldn't catch a cold or the flu.
I was going crazy only eating fruits and veggies. I continued chemo but it was ravishing my body. They had to give me another blood transfusion and a platelet transfusion and an iron transfusion as well as shots to build my blood levels. My CA went down to after my 3rd cycle. They finally reduced my chemo dose. I was put on a weekly cycle. My tumor marker continued to drop, 37, then to I had two weeks to go but the chemo was still to strong. I had my last treatment at the end of October. My levels were too low to continue.
I just went to the doctor yesterday February 10, My CA is I am in remission. I don't want the surgery. I will continue to take these alkaline supplements. I feel like they are the reason the cancer is too small to detected. My email is dva yahoo. She told me I had Ovarian Cancer stage 4 and Ascites. There were tumors in both ovaries, on my abdominal wall, one in my liver, on on my spine, and a bunch in my Omentum.
Please feel free to contact me if you want to know anything else about my story or about the supplements I took. Ira Hello to everyone, my name is Ira. I am 34 years old. I was really shocked, because my little daughter was 1. The surgery was done immediately.
Then 6 courses of chemo every 21 days. I have already had 4. My Ca got down to I never told anyone about my situation, just to my parents and husband. I would like to find some friends with similar situation just to speak to them sometimes. Maybe I can also help someone.
Please write me on my email: My mother has been battling cancer since Since the last post she has tried several diffrent types of chemo at the CTCA. They now know that she is resistant to all but two types of chemo. As well she has had to undergo surgery to have catheters placed in both her lungs to drain fluid, the cancer has spread to there causing pleural effusions.
Currently she is undergoing treatments of Avastin which to my understanding is a clinical trial for ovarian cancer but was intended for lung cancer. I truly hope this will be her cure. We can only put this into gods hands and wait for his will to be done. Sometimes I find myself wondering why anyone must suffer as much as she has, but in the end we have had longer with her than some people are afforded.
I can only pray that each and everyone of you who have been touched by this or any type of cancer will find the cure. One day I hope that cancer is as treatable as your common cold. With all the research and trials maybe we are well on our way to that being a reality. My prayers and well wishes are with you all. Every day of life is a new challenge. It's how we deal with it, is the challenge. In at age 60, I was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer and it was found in a very late stage due to no symtoms.
They call it the silent killer. The challenge was first of all to get over the shock of being told I had cancer. I have never been sick in my life, never smoked, occasional drink and always ate right and took care of myself. They started me on chemo for 3 months before going in for surgery.
At the end of that 3 months, my husband who was 62 at that time, has a massive heart attack and dies. I'm not a young woman, I was working but didn't expect my golden years would be alone and I still had that surgery lingering out there. People around me were in more shock than I was so I was continually comforting them and trying to maintain some type of self control and yet go through my mourning period.
I had my surgery with my 3 children by my side, and continued for 15 more months of chemo. Now I'm a working woman, never got sick from the chemo by the way and would go right back to work after my treatment, bald and a widow. As if this wasn't enough challenges I had been through, I had another one. My youngest son dies This of all my challenges was the worst of all. I could deal with having chemo, being alone, being bald. But to lose your child is the hardest hit I could have ever imagined or taken.
No one in my family is or probably ever will be. The moral of this story is I have been cancer free for 16 months now, have my hair back, still working and have wonderful children, family and friends surrounding me. I was a sympathic person before all this and now I am much more compassionate, emphathetic and caring for people around me. Life doesn't stop with all these hurdles that hit us nor do I want it to stop.
I have 9 grandchildren that need me, friends that need me and family that need me and I need them. I still have too much living to do. So with a strong faith, love from family and friends and a positive attitude, we really can get through anything life throws at us. Sherry CCH It was about mid July this year, I thought I was putting on more weight as usual, I looked down at my upper stomach and noticed it was getting bigger, as I said I thought I was just putting on weight.
I thought I had better go to the Doctor and get it checked out. I went to him beginning of August, told him that I was experiencing a slight pull lower abdomen and that my stomach looked and felt bloated. But, 2 weeks later it felt like it was getting bigger so I went back to him, who then, bloody hell, gave me some D-Gas tablets, how's that for a diagnosis.
So I went away for 2 weeks took the D-Gas tablets was actually very funny as my husband laughed a bit and said, why on earth did he give you those, you have no problem D-Gasing AHole , mind you I thought it was funny as well, we both started cracking up laughing. Anyhow, couple of weeks later I went back said that something was not right, even though I was not experiencing any pain whatsoever, I knew something was not quite right.
He then got me to lie on the bed in his surgery and he had a look and feel around my stomach, then said oh your right there is something there. We both talked and he said he was pretty sure it was only a cyst probably dermoid in origin. He then acted quite fast, a referral went to the gynaecologist at our local hospital and another referral to the radiology department asking for a CT scan.
Everything more or less started from there, a week later I had an appointment with Radiology, blood test CA , and a couple of days later I had an appointment to see the Gynaecologist.
The blood test came back quite raised even tho I got told it was slightly raised - whateva and he could see something untoward going on in the cyst and also other affected areas. I was in hospital that following week having supposedly a total abdominal hysterectomy. I could say all went well but I am not going to.
The next day he came and saw me with the news. I had Ovarian Cancer in which cells had also attached to my bladder, bowel, omentum and appendix. I asked him to come back the next day to give me time to think things over. He said to me they were not there to prolong life they were there to cure it - this meant a lot at the time but have learnt a lot since then.
I went into hospital 17th October, needed to get over the hysterectomy first. Had first lot of chemo treatment 17 November which consisted of two drugs Paclitaxel and Carboplatin.
The Paclitaxel taxol was a 3 hour administer, and the Carboplatin 1 hour. I was 8mins into the Taxol and had a really bad allergic reaction to it, they had to give me something to hurry up and counteract it.
They flushed this through as fast as possible and then half n hour later tried the Carboplatin which was fine, so now they either have to find something else to replace the Taxol while I continue on the Carboplatin. Today is the 7 day post chemo, havent felt too bad, still early days yet. I have a husband really supportive , a son who is home from University for 3 months and the rest of my family is wonderful and supportive also mum, dad, sisters, brothers etc.
Oh yeah live in New Zealand. I remain healthy, NED. Add something else to the list of six month check-ups! I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer stage 1C in August when I was 35 years old. I had a right side oophorectomy. In August I was diagnosed with endometrial cancer stage 1B and had a total hysterectomy. Because I was lucky enough to be stage 1 both times I did not have chemo. In July my father was diagnosed with brain cancer.
I shared this information with my genetic counselor. My father's uncle also had brain cancer. It is likely our family has this variation. I chose not to be tested to confirm the diagnosis since there is no early screening for brain cancer. Why waste the time and the money? I can't stress enough how important it is to know your family medical history. Knowing your risks and being screened for early detection is key to long term survival.
Share your story with your family and friends. I continue to pray for the ladies on the ovarian cancer chat group. When I needed a virtual hug or some hand holding you have always been there. Being able to talk to someone who has walked in my shoes has been a blessing. Peace and Prayers - jbx a. The stories have been an inspiration and they fill me with such hope. In March my mother age 64 began losing weight and her hands were swelled.
She had been diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome years earlier. Her and my father were under extreme stress and depression.
They were on the verge of losing their home of 30 years and their business of 40 years because of the bad economy. I am the 2nd eldest daughter and me and my older sister thought the tiredness and weightloss were all part of her life situation.
She went to the doctors for her hands in December and they told her to take ibuprofren. Finally in May she was sent to a arthritis specialist who gave her a lung x-ray because he suspected a deadly auto-immune disease that turns your body to stone. We were terrified but not as much as when they found a mass on the x-ray in her abdomen.
We were lucky she was only 5'2 and it showed up. Immediate hysterectomy with debulking. After operation first question out of my mouth was How many years has a patient of yours with the same stage of ovarian cancer survived? He answered 22 years I have clung to those words since Six months of cheomo up in Jan It is now October and her CA is creeping up first 25 now We have cat-scan on Wednesday then go from there.
My mother had not been to a gynecologist in 5 years since hers moved to Florida. She had been to every other doctor for high blood pressure to cholesterol. Why was CA not standard? I am scared but hopeful. I always come back to this website I want survival stories from all you brave, courageous and inspiring women. Since she was diagnosed with MS the year before, she thought she was having a flare-up and maybe needed her MS medication changed.
She struggled to get examined by her neurologist who finally changed her meds over the phone. In December Lea Ann developed a cough that would not go away.
She made several visits to her primary care doctor and was given anti-biotics and cough medicine and finally a chest x-ray which was clear. Her pain and fatigue steadily got worse. She also started having night sweats, hair loss, and lost weight. That doctor only ran blood tests and did not examine her. The diagnosis was chronic fatigue syndrome and estrogen umbers that were a little low.
Lea Ann was given a low dose of estrogen. The estrogen did nothing for her symptoms so she quit taking it after a short time. Lea Ann continued working as a 3rd grade teacher in spite of her discomfort. She used her rolling teacher chair as a walker to get around the classroom. Her periods stopped in March and by May she had lost almost 50 pounds. She made an appointment with a new neurologist for early June so she would not have to miss a school day.
The doctor reviewed all her symptoms and told her something was wrong and MS was not causing most of her trouble. Her primary care doctor ordered a body scan that showed a large tumor on one ovary, several tumors in her liver and 2 tumors in one lung.
She found out she has stage 4 ovarian cancer. Chemo began in July. She had some trouble with the drugs, some reactions and poor blood numbers caused delays. By September the doctor ordered another body scan to check the tumors.
The tumors had grown in spite of the chemo. Lea Ann was so weak and the cancer so aggressive the doctor thought no more could be done. She had months.
We had all been so full of hope. This was horrible news. Lea Ann was admitted to hospice care at home on September 21, She has good days and bad days.
She is in the last stages now. We pray for a peaceful passing. Women do not ignore your pain or dismiss your symptoms. Lea Ann lost a 7 month head start on fighting her cancer due to bad doctoring. Kae Peaster Mays My mother was the most beautiful woman I had ever known. Even when I was in jr. She had a natural beauty, the kind with no need for makeup and just jeans and t-shirts.
She was also extremely stubborn. When she was 41 she had started having pains in her lower side. Being stubborn and tough she didn't go to the doctor for months until the pain was so unbearable she could no longer take it. She really hadn't been to the gynecologist since my sister was born, who was now When she had finally gone to her doctor they found a cyst on her ovaries and decided to have a routine operation to remove it.
It was during the operation that they realized that it was not just a cyst. She was diagnosed with Stage 4 Ovarian Cancer at the age of She was such a fighter! You seriously never knew that she was ever in pain. She didn't want anyone to feel sorry for her or to know she wasn't doing well. My mother died on Thursday, July 26, at the age of She worked her full time job up until the Friday before she passed away. She passed away on her vacation week that she was going to come and see me.
Tough woman but God called her home and I am thankful that my faith lets me know I will see her again someday. I am a grandmother raising 3 granddaughters, I ran a day-care home and I knew that I had hernias in my stomach.
I started having a lot of pain. After children were picked up my husband took me to the ER. I had many tests and they kept me from wednesday-Friday. I finally gave them permission to do surgury to repair the hernias, I stayed in hospital for one week; since I had staples I had to go back the following week to remove them. The doctor asked me if I wanted the good news first or the bad news. I had no idea what the doctor meant, he told me he had found a tumor and removed it and sent it for biopsy.
The result came back stage 4 Ovarian-Peritoneal Cancer. I had to go the next week to see a gynecologist. They ordered a ct scan and some bloodwork and said I needed to start chemo.
I was terrified but was ready to fight. I had many people and churches praying and I totally gave it to the Lord. I went through 4 cycles of chemo, lost 30 lbs but got through it. All blood tests, CA and ct scans are within normal range. I go see my oncologist at the end of Dec , hoping all is within normal range. I will tell you please don't give up and stay strong because miracles do happen. Sandi Pniauskas Hope with More: Ever-present are the realities that ovarian cancer is a disease most often en-shrined in significant suffering.
This is our past and this is our current reality. Each day brings a kaleidoscope of emotions. With each passing day, the struggles of the fine line between Hope, Reality, Wishes, Expectations and Dreams remain. We speak as one without boundaries and indeed in many respects ovarian cancer IS the silent killer. Against our will and with significant sacrifices, this ovarian cancer invariably defeats the body and the spirit. I challenge you to listen, as we have, so silently, for so long. A decade of intimate involvement with ovarian cancer women, their caregivers and communities, has most often elicited truisms that stand out.
