I'm helping out with a teaching session on Ovarian Cancer at the British School of Osteopathy on 9th February and have been asked to present the patient experience.
I'm aware from reading material posted here on this community that we have diverse pains, problems with swelling, neuropathy, feelings of poor health, etc so I realise my own experience is limited and it would be good to collect the experiences of many women and share these with the osteopath who is preparing the session.
The Cancer Research website lists how osteopathy may help certain symptoms:
Ease or control pain
Help restore movement
Improve feeling of wellbeing
Would anyone be willing to help by giving me a little overview of pain experienced, neuropathy, tension or general feeling of poor health? The anonymised information I gather will be shared with the teaching osteopath in order to prepare for the session. There's a bit of background material on osteopathy on Cancer Research UK website: cancerresearchuk.org/cancer...
I'd be really grateful for any feedback by 31 January either on this thread or via PM and when the speakers' notes become available from the training day I'd be very happy to share them with you.
Thanks so much. Annie
