Take all the time you need for you and your loved ones to understand your prognosis and the various options available to you.
Your oncologist will discuss treatment options with you at length, and it’s a good idea to bring someone else to the appointment to take notes and help you remember everything. You may want to do your own research, which in turn may lead you to additional questions for your doctor.
It’s important to make sure you understand everything that’s happening. Ask all the questions and take all the time you need as you learn about your treatment options. Here are some resources that may help:
- The American Cancer Society describes ovarian cancer treatment options in detail.
