    Runette- My mom was diagnosed with stage 3C cancer in December and is now chemo. She is coming up on her 5th treatment and has had to cancel twice because her white blood cell counts were too low. I would like to hear your story and any insight you can provide. Thanks.

    Hello, my mum's had two sessions of chemo therapy so far. Her oncologist has her take an injection called Recombinant Human G-CSF every day for five days, starting a few days after each chemo session, and that helps to boost her white blood cell count significantly. I don't know if your mum's been having those injections too. If not, perhaps you could mention them to your oncologist?

    ajcpk- No, my mom has not had that injection nor has it been mentioned. We will definitely speak to the oncologist, her next chemo treatment is Tuesday. Thank you for letting me know, any info very much appreciated.

    That's sad. In so many cases Ovarian Cancer is treatable at an early stage and prevention is cure, however, in some cases that if the person has no symptoms that's pretty hard to detect unless you undergo some test. In my case, right after my surgery my ob advise me to take a 3 shot for anti-cervix cancer. I had my 1st shot last April 15, and the second one will be on June.

    I was diagnosed with 3-C ovarian cancer in 2009. I am doing well at this time. Have faith in God and your doctors and look at options. I have been doing holistic medicine along with conventional and see success. I eat no sugars and no grains. Good luck!
