Does anyone have any experience with mucinous ovarian cancer?
Does anyone have any experience with mucinous ovarian cancer? It’s rare (around 3% of cases), doesn’t present like normal ovarian cancer and is often resistant to treatment. I have had both ovaries removed and am IC, and 3 rounds of chemo is recommended as a preventative for recurance, though I am hesitant because the chemo only around a 25-35% efficacy rate with mucinous ovarian cancer, so I am not sure I want to preemptively poison myself. Anyone know of some alternative therapies?
