    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    I was not feeling well and had symptoms similar to my pre-existing conditions..back pain and bladder pressure. I had lost my primary job with benefits almost 4yrs ago and had to bartend to survive as a single mother of a teenage boy. I was very humbled by my having to change my life and the physical and mental toll it was taking on me. I finally was getting ill and had to stop working. I tried to start my own business and 3 months later I was in the Hospital getting ultrasounds and CT Scans. With no Insurance or job! I was diagnosed with stage 3 Ovarian Cancer.

    Hysterectomy

    Procedure or Surgery

    The Hysterectomy was major, they thought they would have to take part of my intestin. I went into surgery not knowing if I was going to wake up with Cancer and a bag. I was lucky no bag but was diagnosed with stage 3 Ovarian Cancer with some lymphnoids. My front tooth that had a Veneer on it was knocked loose. I was thrown right into Menipause, the hot flashes are constant. It took me a month to recover enough to start Chemotherapy.

    Went as Expected: Not Specified
    Minimal Recovery: Not Specified
    Minimal Side Effects: Not Specified
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Not Specified

    Accupuncture

    Other Care

    I have a wonderful Accupunturist and it has helped me so much with all of my side effects. I think that you can benefit so much from the treatments. I was very blessed to know my Dr.. personally and she continues to treat me. I also recomend Pain Management for some of the side effects, no one should suffer through this horrible experience. Paliative care is very helpful!

    Kangen Water

    Other Care

    Kangen Water has helped me bring my number down to normal levels. It has a high PH and lower acid levels than any other water purifiers. Cancer can not live in alcoline levels from drinking Kangen water.
