Maria,

I hope that the radiation will help you and that all questions will be answered to your satisfaction. From other posters, it would appear that radiation may be helpful. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

Dear Maria,

The insurace company and the medical establishment has put you through so much and now this...I am so sad to read the latest development. Yet I am hopeful the radiation will be of benefit to you. I have a friend who has been fight ovarian cancer for maybe 4 years now...she recently started radiation and her body has tolerated it very well...her condition is showing improvement. I can only hope and pray that you too will be so blessed.

You have been a real warrior over the last 18 months. I was glad to see by your notes that you haven't given up the fight. The doctors so routinely go about discharging orders and seeing patients, all too often without considering that what for them is routine, is not routine for us, and they need to slow down to answer our questions and offer some reassurance. I hope your doctors are doing that for you. You have been in my daily prayers....I will have to pray harder. Sending you positive thoughts. Hugs, Melodie

Hi Maria
I am so sorry you are going through this.Its great though that you are getting treatment so quickly.Radiation has really helped me to function again I only had a weeks worth of treatment and it was easy to cope with as the dosage isnt high.
It is really hard to cope with the change in status but at least the radiation therapy should enable you to do it without pain.Good luck and please feel free to get in touch if I can help at all

Maria, I am new here and I am so sorry to hear that you are going through so muchs but remember you are not alone as long as you have everyone here. I am sending you a vertual smile to let you know we are here to support you. We understand exactly how you are feeling. It's ok to be angry, sad or what ever else you feel like being. All those jumbled up emotions are perfetly normal for all you are going through. I'm on the emotional roller coaster called cancer as well and have felt those same feelings. I pray you have an easy time during your treatment and that you are succesful managing your pain. Mary:)
