I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer on August 13, 2010, and I had surgery ten day later. I was staged at 3C, high grade.
The doctor, who is a gynecologic oncologist, told me after surgery that he removed all visible tumors and the result was 99% optimal debulking. Last week I had another CT scan (4weeks after surgery) before I start chemo. The CT scan showed that behind the sigmoid colon there are two tumors. One is 1.70cm x 1.30cm, and the second is 0.9cm x 0.7cm. When I asked the doctor whether the cancer was left behind from surgery, or if it was new grow. He said it could be rapidly growing from the sand like cancer or it could be scar tissue from surgery. I know doctors rarely admit mistakes. I am confused and scared. I am scheduled to have the first Taxol/ Carbo IV chemotherapy this Wednesday. Hopefully, chemo drugs can kill the tumors. Can high grade tumor grow that fast?
