Ovarian Cancer

Geagte Dokter,

My ma 59 jaar is gediagnoseer met ovarian kanker wat na haar bowels versprei het. Alhoewel sy geweldig geswel is oor haar buik is haar bene en voete ook geswel en dis asof dit vererger. Dit is glo a.g.v die vog. Sy word Do 23 April geopereer. My vraag is - sy ontvang geen behandeling vir die vog nie net morfien vir pyn en ek wil weet of die vog/water nie oor haar longe of hart kan gaan nie?

The fluid is there as a result of the tumour, and will only be helped by removal of the tumour. As this is now fairly soon, there is nothing to really do before then. Good luck.

Best wishes
