I have been in remission for 9 months, CA125 is dancing around 6. I am starting to get my energy up and I'm feeling optimistic. I was in Chemo for 18 weeks, lost every hair, so grateful that it's dark brown, not so excited about it being curly but thrilled beyond words that I'm NOT wearing a wig. I lost my marriage (20 years) house and health all last year. I'm truly starting over alone at 52 and I'm getting happy again. I scared though. I want to be in a relationship with a man but I think I'm pushing them away because I'm afraid I'm going to disappoint them and die too early on. I know that doctors just give you stats but, aren't those stats based on facts?
Bottom line: I'm new to this site and I want to know the truth, are their 'lots' (not just one special case) of real people out there still alive past the 'hopeful 5 year mark with stage 3 c?"
