I was diagnosed with Primary Peritoneal Cancer (PPC) in August 2012. and after the initial terror both for me and my family I came to terms with this and got on with the treatment. 3 cycles of chemotherapy followed by radical hysterectomy and then a further three cycles of chemo. Not much fun but bearable with the wonderful support of my lovely family.
From the initial diagnosis until the surgery in November 2012 I managed to continue working a little. I had / have a very understanding and compassionate employer. Following Surgery I remained off work until Feb 18th this year. Today I am back at work full time and feel fine.
I am writing this blog as I want to document my experience and knowledge of this condition and pass on to others how I have coped so far. Anything I write will be my thoughts and experience and not therefore to be taken in the place of medical advice. Always seek that first. However I shall attempt to add links and information that I have found helpful.
The most importand element of this blog for me is to pull together a venue (virtual) for others who have this diagnosis as there is very little out there. If I can help others with PPC or their family and friends to understand and feel less alone I would like that. So message me through my facebook page or leave a comment here. Thanks for reading this. Take care. D
