Dr Oz was joined by Nancy on the Dr Oz Show today, because her life was saved by watching Doctor Oz’s segment on Ovarian Cancer Symptoms (if you missed that show, click here to read the recap: Dr Oz: Ovarian Cancer Symptoms). This story was truly heart-warming and sent chills down my spine as Nancy told her story!
Nancy is a wife, mom and grandma who had not been feeling well and knew something was wrong. She was extremely bloated and within 3-4 weeks she went from a size 6 to a size 12 and looked as if she was 8 months pregnant. Her doctor tested for urinary problems, but she was seeing no progress. When Nancy heard Dr Oz’s show about Ovarian Cancer Warning Signs, she went out to get an ultrasound immediately and a week later she was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer. If it had not been for the Dr Oz Show, Nancy may not be here today because her doctor kept insisting that it was a UTI. All of us are trained to believe that our doctors know best and that we should just trust them, so we never really stop to question them.
Dr Oz asked Nancy how she felt when she saw his show on Ovarian Cancer Warning Signs. She said that at first she was relieved because she may have figured out what it was, but then she felt scared because cancer of any type is very scary.
Dr Oz Ovarian Cancer Treatment
Dr Oz asked Nancy what her treatment was like after she was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer. She said that 2 weeks after she was diagnosed, she had a complete Hysterectomy, which was followed up with 6 sessions of chemotherapy. Nancy had stage 3 Ovarian Cancer and the surgeon said that it was a fast growing cancer. What is truly shocking is that Nancy had all 6 Ovarian Cancer Signs, and she still was misdiagnosed over and over again! So please, read this list of Ovarian Cancer Warning Signs and e-mail a link to this article to all of your friends and family so that we can save more lives together!
