I am so sorry I have not replied to you, I feel really bad about it, I don’t go on this site a lot now, you want to forget the bad times, but it is a bit selfish of me as a lot of people need the support that I got, anyway it has been nearly a year since my last treatment and I am feeling really well, it was hard going on avastin towards the end of treatment, I had twelve single treatments after I had it with chemo, and I must admit I did feel like giving up towards the end but was glad I kept going, had more issues with joint pain towards end and after, but they are all gradually going. Hope all going well for you, try and keep positive and take each day at a time, I found you could not predict how you would feel from one to next. Best wishes.

  • Well done Kathy, it's a lot harder for someone on their own, I admire you and agree with you it's not good to get depressed, keep it up.
  • It's hard to accept, but if you do get angry don't bottle it up, I did for some time then all of a sudden, when I was feeling really bad normally 3 days after chemo, legs aching , tired, sore mouth, hair falling out, my husband told me to keep posit…
  • I agree with Connie, I had stage 4 ovarian cancer, did the wrong thing by looking it up and the survival rate was very low, I have had 18months of chemo and an operation and am clear at the moment. It is so easy to go down hill and get negative and …
  • Keep positive and try and keep away from people that are negative or sympathize with you too much they will bring you down, if you feel like a good cry have one, no shame in this it can relieve tension, talk to those close to you how you feel, it's …
