Hi Pink Flamingo.  It's natural what you are going through, I was also terrified when they broke the news to me,  One day at a time, remember, one day at a time.  Everyone on here will give you all their support, it's a natural reaction to being told that you have cancer, best laxative I know of.ha ha ha.  Still just take it easy and read what people are telling you, ask you oncologist, nurse practioner, trawl the internet. Get digging into what you have, the crowd on here are fantastic, helpful, and they know how to listen, aswell.  Good luck, we are all here for you. X

You are only here once, so live it to the full and be thankful.   Remember, a trouble shared is a trouble halved .
Don't be scared of your diagnosis, Cancer that dreaded word!  Talk about it. To the users on here, at home.  Doesn't it feel better now you have done so.

When you've been diagnosed with ovarian cancer, your doctor will work with you to decide what treatment is right for you. How much surgery you have depends on how far the cancer has spread. Please do consult a good doctor and if you are facing any financial problem regarding this treatment then take the help from The Health Exchange Agency who will provide some health insurance plan and one of them is medicare supplement plan G .
