mucinous overian cancer

Hi there I've recently been diagnosed with stage 1C2 mucinous ovarian cancer.   I've been told that it's the kind of cancer that requires surgery but doesn't respond to chemo therefore I'm having to have a full hysterectomy next week, .  I was wondering if anyone who has had this kind of mucinous cancer has ended up having chemo after having had the same procedure?

You get to know how your going to react and what side affects you will experience. It has also being my experience that the affects can be more pronounced with each cycle. What side effects do others have and how long did they take to go?

my story

I was getting terrible stomach cramps just before I needed to go to the loo. They got so painful that I couldn’t speak. I remember talking to a shop assistant and just staring at her and mentally willing her to carry on talking while I internalised the pain. Looking back, I had lost weight too, but not a massive amount. At the time I put the weight loss down to the fact that I’d just moved house and there was a lot of going up and down stairs.

IP port for chemo

I have two ports for my chemo treatments. One is a power port and the other was an IP port. The IP port put the chemo directly to my stomach. I haven't found anyone to talk to about their IP port experience. Is there anyone willing to have a discussion about their experience? My experience was not a pleasant one and I would like to know if that is the norm.

Homeopathic Medicine

Hi Everyone, I've just joined today. A friend suggested I try Iscador (Mistletoe) when I started to relapse after first line treatment last November. There's no way to say whether it has made any difference or not but it is associated with an additional six months remission and here I am nearly 2 1/2 years after diagnosis and first treatment and only just needing another dose of chemotherapy. xx
