re OC AWARENESS

Well I got a lovely email today from a member of the Irish College of General Practitioners. She stated that she is doing her utmost to highlight the issue of Ovarian Cancer at committee level and higher. I also have some information leaflets from SOCKS which I will distribute to surgeries nearer World Ovarian Cancer Day. So in the meantime I have scan on Thursday with treatment so I drink the lovely drink while hooked to the infusion of Avastin. Apparently this is a new system in the hospital so that Vhi will cover the lot. I dont see the oncologist until end of April but if they need me to come in they will let me know so trying to stay positive.

Well done Suzuki.Your really proactive for the cause :-)I was a little disappointed on Friday night with the gyneoncologist on U.T.V,That was a fantastic chance to broadcast the symptoms of O.C,but what he said was very vague.Bloating,Feeling full and generally feeling unwell is too little info of the symptoms.As I said to Daisies,I'm not getting notifications of members messages on the forum ,so again thank you for yor wonderful work on our behalf.Best of luck with your scan.x

I am the same I am still not getting notifications to my email account but I just go straight to Ovacare site and get on that way and know what is happening. I dont know if it is because my email account was upgraded or what but as long as I can keep in touch I dont mind

That is great. Miriam Daly is very committed to getting the guidelines released as soon as possible and Ovacare have met with her previously on this. She made a committment to always include ovarian cancer in any education programs she would do.
