    I did not get the exact diagnosis you did. Mine got complicated and misdiagnosed as colon cancer because I had mass in colon.  Then told it was Primary Peritoneal, then final and correct dx was OC.  This was October, 2017.  First surgery removed mass and peritoneneum.  Had carbo/taxol once a week for 3 months in prep for second surgery to remove ovaries and tubes, I had a partial when I was 37.&nb...

      Dear Punky, Ty for your reply.  I see oncologist next week and my weight will be the first thing to talk about.  There have always been other concerns in previous appts that superceded and with the little time they give you, never got to address it.  I have researched the condition everywhere and it scares me.   Thanks again.

        After my second surgery for OC, I had lost a total of 20lbs, give or take.  I look anorexic.  My Oncologist noted Cachexia as a concern.  I have not been able to gain an ounce in 2 1/2 months.  I have an appetite but for obvious reasons cannot overload on sugary foods.  Anyone else have this?  If so, how are you handling it and are you successful in overcoming it?

          I purchased CBD Oil, which is Hemp, as I live in AZ.  It cost 80$ and does absolutely nothing for anything.  I guess I will have to go thru the steps of getting a medical marijuana card to get what I need. I now have Valley Fever on top of OC and the treatment for that is worse than Chemo! Thank you for your response.  Best of luck.

            I have Stage 4 Ovarian Cancer and have been told that the chemo is not working.  In other words, go home and die.  I am looking into cannabis oil and wonder if anyone has had any success with it and where to get it.
