Hello:

I am KAT4365 from Columbus OH and a stage IV survivor.
Was diagnosed in 12 2008 and in remission for year. Am now just completing my second round of treatment due to relapse in July 2010.

I am happy to hear of this forum and agree with CMC1234 that we need to keep the faith, abide in hope, and live life to the fullest each day. Doctor's predictions on life expectancies for us late stagers need to be kept in proper perspective.

Tommorrow is history, the future a mystery, today is the gift..that's why we call it "the present".

Would love to stay in touch but don't quite understand if I can chat "individually" with anyone in this group. Is "start a discussion" the only way to "chat?"

God bless each of you.

I was diagnosed stage 3C in May of '09. After a year remission, my ca-125 began to rise from a low of 7. It is now 84. I have been having pain and bloating but nothing shows on a scan. I'm going bonkers! How did they find your recurrence?
