OK, so Ive always wanted a blog, and BAM!!! My good friend Rugi agreed that I should have one to share my story and keep you people updated. On What? you may be asking. MY CANCER DUUUUH!!!!
In the beginning of September, I was told I have stage 4 ovarian cancer. It started with a hard, non-painful lump on the side of my neck. I had it for about a month before getting it checked out. I mean, who would EVER think they would wake up with cancer all of a sudden??? at the age of 25 for at that. (
NOT ME) SOOOOO, after being given some antibiotics, a week later the lump was still there, I was given an x ray for my neck. Results came back and showed that WHATEVER it was in my neck, there was more where that came from. Not ONLY did I have that one lump, but several more around the area, including my chest. So then I was given ANOTHER x ray from my chest down. Come to find out, There was more activity found on my ovaries. Up until last week, the doctors have been going back and forth to conclude, if in fact, I have ovarian cancer because the lump was found in my NECK, so they were indecisive to where the cancer originally started. The specialty doc at UC Davis didn’t even want to believe it was ovarian, but after multiple blood test and biopsy’s, Results show that it couldn’t be non other than OVARIAN CANCER!!!!! Let me rewind and explain what stage 4 means. Oh! please believe I had a break down after I heard “STAGE 4” because that’s the highest stage you can be. But all it means is that it has already left the area from which it originally occurred. BLAH!
OH, GET THIS!!!! I was getting chemo once every 3 weeks for 6 cycles, but the chemo wasn’t working on my cancer. So now I’m WAITING on a stronger chemo med. Good thing is my hair will grow back because hair loss isn’t a side effect, BUT DAMN!!! that means my hair fell out for NOTHING! whatever….So that’s where I’m at right now…..just waiting. WHO DOES THAT!!! me, duh. Hope that was an exciting first time blog. Ill have much more to come. NEVER A DULL MOMENT IN THE LIFE OF EBONEY!!!!
