I am so sorry to hear about your dx at such a young age. I have a 14 year old granddaughter and was wondering if you could please post what your symptoms were and what tests you had to get a dx. I have a friend who had ov ca, endo ca, spread to colon and appendix....had surgery... in hospital 21 days...that was 25 years ago and she is fine today with no followup treatment. I am an endo cancer survivor and will be praying for your continued health.
God bless you, sweetheart,
