4 Year Stage IIIC Ovarian Cancer Survivor

Linda

In December 2010, when Linda was 54 years old, she began experiencing symptoms that she tried to ignore—bloating, diarrhea, vomiting. Linda figured it was a virus that she’d get over. But one morning that next February she became extremely sick. Linda felt a horrible pain in her stomach that would not go away. That night she went to the emergency room. The next thing she knew she was being transferred to a regional cancer center. But no one told her that she had cancer. She was shocked.

Linda says "At the cancer center, the doctors wanted to perform emergency surgery, but I developed an infection. I was in the hospital for several days while the infection was treated, and then underwent a complete hysterectomy, and removal of my appendix. I learned that there was one large mass and one small mass in my stomach, along with over a gallon of water. The doctor scraped cells from my lymph nodes to check for cancer. I remained in the hospital for three or four days after surgery." Read more here...
