....no worries

May pathology reports are back. The verdict is, "no invasive carcinoma".

Translation? No cancer, no chemo, no worries.....

There were some scary things on that report though. Cell changes that said it was just a matter of time. My surgeons have all said it was a very wise decision to have this surgery, and good that I did it when I did. I don't regret the decision at all.

Now I will concentrate on healing and getting back to life again...

I'm here via Michele today. It's good to hear you got a clear report card! Yay. Good for you.

I read the previous post to this one. I agree with you in terms of Sept not being widely recognised at Ovarian Cancer awareness month but give it a year or two and I'm sure it will be widely known, as it took the Breast Cancer Awareness month a few years to take off...

Thank goodness. I'm so relieved and so happy that you've received this news. I knew all along that you had already made the right decision: it's nice to have it validated by the results.

(written September of 2005) I have learned much in the last nine months. I have read that ovarian cancer whispers. I say it screams. It just needs someone to listen. The American Cancer Society statistics for ovarian cancer estimate that there will be 22,220 new cases and 16,210 deaths in 2005. This is a death rate FOUR TIMES that of breast cancer.Almost 70 percent of women with the common epithelial ovarian cancer are not diagnosed until the disease is advanced in stage. The 5-year survival rate for these women is only 15 to 20 percent. This is unacceptable. Women need to be made more aware of the symptoms, and doctors need to listen to their patients. Especially when the patient tells them that they fear they have ovca, as my mother did for almost a year before she was finally diagnosed. It’s so sad and senseless when a woman knows the symptoms but can’t get anyone to listen to what she is saying.
