Managing Ovarian Cancer - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: You or someone you care about may have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer. This video will help you understand how to manage it. The ovaries are two glands in a woman's pelvis. They produce eggs for reproduction and make hormones. Ovarian cancer is a disease in which cancer cells grow out of control in your ovaries. Treatment for ovarian cancer may remove or destroy the cancer. After treatment, it's very important to have a follow-up care plan. This includes going to all follow-up appointments. Your doctor will want to check to see if the cancer has returned and check for health problems resulting from treatment. You will likely need to see your doctor often after your treatment. Ask about what kind of schedule you can expect. If you are on any medications, continue to take them as prescribed by your doctor. Take note of any side effects and tell your doctor. If you had surgery on your ovaries or other treatments, follow any instructions you were given. You may also need to make some of the following healthy lifestyle changes. Don't smoke, and limit how much alcohol you drink. Both of these activities may increase your risk of cancer. Eat a healthy diet with more fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. A healthy diet may reduce the risk of your cancer coming back. Become physically active. Daily exercise and activities can help you feel better. It is important to speak with your doctor before starting an exercise plan or making lifestyle changes. Keep in mind that some cancer treatments can make you feel very tired. Ask your doctor what you can do to help you feel less tired. Knowing you have cancer can be overwhelming. You may have worries about things like your condition and how it affects your family, treatments and hospital stays, medical bills, and your job. Fortunately, there are ways to cope with this. Talk to your health care team. They can help you find the support that's right for you. The following sources of support can help you cope with your concerns-- social workers, church leaders, counselors, and support groups. Talk to your doctor if you have any questions about your treatment plan, medications, or lifestyle changes to help you manage ovarian cancer.
