Dear Gillian,
We are so sorry for your suffering and hope we can find you the support you are requesting.

Our GCS expert, Dr. Michael Birrer offered the following:

There is essentially no data to rely on since this is a rare situation with a rare tumor. But in my opinion I would recommend a full staging procedure which would involve repeat surgery and removal of the ovaries. At that point it is likely that chemo would be indicated.

He also offered that you could call Kim at his office: 501-296-1200 or email his office: uamshealth.com at the University of Alabama.

Please take care and let us know how you proceed.
