I think on Thursday we got the final pathology report back. What they had previously believed to be germ cell ovarian cancer actually is epithelial ovarian cancer, the more common kind. Prognosis is basically the same for both, but the treatment is much different. Whereas I previously thought I would be staying in the hospital for 3 days at a time getting chemo, I actually will just be doing outpatient chemotherapy!! So just one day, a few hours, every 3 weeks. I was so glad to hear that! I am sick of staying at the hospital. I will still lose my hair and I am not sure of the other side effects.
I have an appointment on Monday at 11 to speak with my gynecological oncologist about some stuff and then another appointment on Tuesday morning with the chemotherapy doctor where I will find out exactly when I start treatment, how long it will take, side effects, etc.
That's all for now, its so good to be home!! I will be back in Orem to my real home probably next Tuesday or so. For now I'm hanging with the family so they can help take care of me :)
