Cristina Bordianu has a truly unique tale to tell. Despite the fact that she was diagnosed with the illness when it was already advanced, she was still able to survive and even beat ovarian cancer. She describes her experiences before and after being diagnosed while wiping away tears as she describes what it was like to live with the disease. At the age of 43, Cristina Bordianu learned that she has ovarian cancer, after spending a very long time visiting many doctors’ offices and undergoing a great deal of testing.
She claims that despite undergoing all of the tests that her family doctor and the specialists advised, nothing seemed to be wrong.
“The initial symptoms can be confusing. My upper abdomen hurt and I was bloated. My colon and spleen were thought to be enlarged, respectively. My spleen was actually enlarged, according to several ultrasounds I had. She wasn’t covering the tumor for any other reason other than the spleen was enlarged. Cristina Bordianu informed us, “And I didn’t know that.
Cristina, an experienced mother, visited the emergency room at Municipal hospital after receiving several treatments and tests and when the symptoms grew worse. She was informed that she was unquestionably pregnant at Triaj, where the medical staff is required to direct patients to the appropriate ward. “I visited the emergency room because I was already very swollen and couldn’t even breathe. They first informed me that I was expecting. Being pregnant was nothing new to me because I was already a mother. Plus, you swell from a pregnancy over months rather than just one, like I did.
However, they persisted, even telling me how the child is seated, that he is on his feet and from there, and the pressure that was preventing me from breathing. They told me I didn’t want to admit my pregnancy after I told them it was impossible. Cristina Bordianu added, “As if it were a shame for me to be pregnant. I lost track of my way home when I learned the diagnosis.
Cristina was ultimately subjected to a more thorough analysis after experiencing more than just humiliating moments and being treated as though she had done something wrong and didn’t want to admit it. The fact that I was swollen due to a significant amount of fluid buildup wasn’t discovered until later. The ultrasound made it abundantly clear that there was no pregnancy. They initially diagnosed me at that time. I still don’t know how or where I left the hospital. Because I had forgotten about him, I called my son. I had the impression that a deep pit was in front of me, and I was about to fall into it. I can’t get away from this.
When my son asked where I was, I could only respond, “At the Municipal,” due to my condition. Cristina cries as she recalls the terrible times she went through: “I didn’t know where I went out, where I took her, or where I was. The first round of chemotherapy was a nightmare Following her experience at the Municipal Hospital, Cristina Bordianu made the decision to continue her research at Polizu, where she met the medical professionals who would ultimately save her life.
“It was very obvious what I had at the first transvaginal ultrasound. Afterward, a CT scan was performed. The prognosis was unexpected. My situation was very serious, and I was already far along. “Cristina Bordianu’s surgery was scheduled as soon as the serious diagnosis was confirmed. Despite the fact that the surgery was successful, she had to endure two trying years of cytostatic treatment. “The initial encounter was a nightmare. My bones hurt so badly that I thought I could no longer breathe. My toes and ring finger both hurt.
Nothing in my body wasn’t in excruciating pain. The body was probably trying to adapt gradually because it didn’t get better until the second session. The past two years have been very challenging. It’s difficult because there are so many things to keep in mind at this time, and you also have to deal with the effects of other things on your body. I was fortunate that I maintained my sanity during this time and had the energy to combat everything.
Now that I am significantly better, my tests were positive, but I am still pursuing the medical advice given to me. Cristiana Bordianu, who has ovarian cancer, is incredibly upbeat and confident that she will eventually be free of this treatment and still be able to live a normal life.
The lowest overall survival rate of any cancer in women is found in ovarian cancer, one of the most serious types of cancer. In addition to the 140,000 women who pass away from this illness each year, 250,000 women worldwide are diagnosed with ovarian cancer every year. Only 45% of women with ovarian cancer survive more than five years after diagnosis, according to statistics, while 89 %, or nearly twice as many patients with breast cancer, survive at the same age after diagnosis.
The biggest issue with ovarian cancer is that many women receive their diagnosis when the disease has already progressed and is much more challenging to treat. Because the symptoms are frequently confused with other, less serious conditions, like digestive issues, cancer is frequently misdiagnosed. There are several ways to find ovarian cancer.
1. ultrasound of the abdomen or the womb; 2. C-arm or MRI imaging; 3. the tumor marker will be assessed via blood test;.
4. surgical techniques such as laparotomy or laparoscopy to obtain a sample of tumor tissue; 5. biopsy.
