Hello all 

I am new to this group, I have stage 4 Ovarian cancer which has spread to my peritoneum

I had chemo which did shrink the tumors, but was told it is touching vital organs and was incurable

I I have been on maintenance therapy tablets to keep it under control but it is active again so I am back on Chemo again. Tomorrow I have my consultation with my consultant on the results of my recent scan so keeping my fingers crossed for the results

Take care everyone and looking forward to being part of this group
