Hi everyone,

I hope you're doing well! I thought I would open this discussion for us to talk about and share experiences of ovarian cancer treatments. emoticon cute

As you know, treatment for ovarian cancer tends to vary, depending on the patient and the stage of the cancer, though treatment typically includes surgery, chemotherapy, or targeted therapy.

If you'd like to learn more, we have an article explaining the different treatment options here: Ovarian cancer: We explain the available treatments

What type(s) of treatment have you undergone for your ovarian cancer? Have you had any side effects? How are you doing now? Was treatment effective for you?

Feel free to share here!

Take care,

Hi Courtney 

I was just diagnosed with ovarian cancer.  I had a hysterectomy and an ooferectoming. They took it all.  I’m still dealing with my emotions.   I’ve lost my hair from treatments.   My colleague’s wife sent me all of her wigs.  She’s a survivor.   I’m scared. I’m single and don’t have a lot of support.  Anything you can offer would be great 

Much appreciated,
