Welcome to my blog dedicated to my Journey with Teal....Ovarian Cancer. This blog is where I will make updates to my treatments and tests....hoping to keep blog friends updated and answer any questions from visitors. I did not pick this journey, but am doing the best I know how to walk strong and gracefully, with my Lord's continual strength!

New Day, New Post, New Plan

Went to the doctor today for my Avastin.  My doctor came out to talk to me and it was decided to stop the Avastin.  My CA125, the blasted thing, is slowly creeping up again and with my joint pain, tooth issue and eye issue, he feels it is time.

I will be detoxing for 2 more weeks and then starting on another trial.  There is high hopes for this new drug.  My doctor only got 5 spots...for OC and lung cancer.  So he wants me to get one.

My hair will thin a bit at the beginning...but hopefully, no total loss.  Never can be completely sure though.

I don't know if this is plan K or L....but I am hopeful.

I also had a thought.  I want to add a page to this blog of other Ovarian Cancer bloggers....fighters and survivors.  So if you are one or you know of someone, please have them comment to me.  Thanks.  I think us OCers.....need each others support.  Maybe we eventually could get the white house to go Teal???

I want to see you whip this thing, Ceekay, and whip it into the pavement. I hate cancer with the heat of a blast furnace.

I was diagnosed in 2008, IIC ovarian cancer, and I have been fortunate to not have any recurrences. I have a weekly blog at www.outshineovariancancer.blogspot.com. I also wrote a book "Outshine: An Ovarian Cancer Memoir" in the hopes that it will help to increase awareness of this awful disease. Proceeds from the book go to ovarian cancer research.
My prayers and thoughts are with you, Ceekay.

A always, you have such a great mindset and positive attitude, Ceekay. As someone in my life is now battling cancer, I have all the respect in the world for those of you who have such strength. My only experience has been losing people to this horrible disease, now I am holding someone's hand and we are determined to win.

Sending hugs...

I am sorry you have to change treatments, Cheekay. Even more sorry that you have to go through this. Praying for a complete recovery for you.

Oh yay that you are getting one of those few spots Ceekay.

I'm so glad that your dr's are willing and anxious to try new things. It kinda seems like so far it all working a little bit. You are always in my prayers!

One of my best friends is fighting colon cancer and my heart breaks for her. She has a great attitude about it all, loves God with all her being but the chemo and cancer combined has made her sooo weak. She is such a fighter, just like you.
Prayers and love, bj

I am so sorry you are having this continued health problem and wish you great results with the new treatment. I am also asking God to just give you total healing! He doesn't even need to wait on the treatment!

According to the Mayo Clinic and the American Institute of Stress, the health symptoms of stress include changes in your mental health, physical appearance and bodily functions. Thanks a lot.

Sending big hugs, Celestina Marie

Ovarian cancer is a cancerous growth arising from the ovary. Symptoms are frequently very subtle early on and may include bloating, pelvic pain, difficulty eating and frequent urination, and are easily confused with other illnesses. Thanks.
