I was diagnosed stage 4 at the age of 24 and 18 weeks pregnant. I went through surgery and chemo while pregnant. My baby girl was born 5 weeks early. She will be 1 on the 12th of this month . She’s happy and healthy. I had more chemo that they made more intense than while I was pregnant. During pregnancy I was on folfox. After I was on folfirinox and avastin (irinotecan oxaliplatin and 5 fu). Did thst for 9 more rounds. After gallbladder attacks and nausea ruining days I finally was able to get my surgery needed at md Anderson. It was 8 hours, removed the cancer from my abdomen, removed my appendix, gallbladder, ovaries, uterus, omentum, and more of my large intestine. I had my colostomy reversed then was given an ileostomy which was reversed back in May. I have been NED since February 26th of this year . That is a very VERY short version of my story. But I hope to bring lots of hope to those who need it.
