My Mom age 81 was diagnosised with Ovarian Cancer in Aug 08 - of course no symptions and then suddenly so sick with fluid in both abdomon and lungs. Luckily her heath was good up until then. Doctors offered little hope, as she had stopped eating and was so weak. Did start 1st dose of chemo in hospital- surgery was not an option. After 2 weeks in hopsital she was sent in a hospice house- then the miracle occured- she began eating and getting stronger- was sent home with hospice and then hospice pulled out. She is now had a total of 6 chemo treatments and done well. The last was Dec 30 08. Now her symptions are feeling she has UTI with burning, been through 3 antibotics and AZO for last month and a half with no improvment. Also somthing like hot flashes. Oncologist doesn't feel chemo related. Also feels that when she has CT next week will show that chemo has done its job. But doesn't offer any help with ureathal burning which is constant. She had ureathal stents and had them removed with no relief. If any one can offer help or ideas this daughter with be so appreciative.
