Diagnosed with stage 3b rectal cancer and ovarian cancer
Hi. I’m Anne. I was diagnosed with stage 3b rectal cancer on February 21, 2017, at the age of 39. I had 28 chemoradiation treatments, LAR with temporary ileostomy, 6 cycles of CapeOx and had my reversal this past January. I also got a surprise during my LAR. My surgeon took my ovaries out because they, “didn’t look right.” It turned out that I also had ovarian cancer. At first we assumed it was metastasis of the rectal cancer, but pathology confirmed that it was indeed ovarian. I am one year NED for both cancers.
