Editorial Reviews

Review

This important book should be included in all consumer health collections, as well as purchased by women affected by the disease.

(Library Journal)

This guide excels at providing detailed medical information and practical tips on ways to reduce the side effects of treatment.

(Mamm)

The latest developments in diagnosis and treatment are discussed―but even more so, is the quality of living itself: it's this which sets A Guide to Survivorship for Women with Ovarian Cancer apart.

(Bookwatch)

Provides a great place for a newly diagnosed woman to start learning about the disease.

(Susan McIntyre Minnesota Ovarian Cancer Alliance Newsletter)

Because the authors all have years of clinical experience, they seem to understand what women worry about and care about, and they address these issues throughout the book.

(Canadian Women's Health Network)

Plenty of women's health books discuss ovarian cancer symptoms and treatments - but how do women diagnosed continue their lives? Guide To Survivorship For Women With Ovarian Cancer tells how to live life well after diagnosis. Two Johns Hopkins gynecologic oncologists and a clinical nurse emphases living life well in the face of the uncertainties ovarian cancer brings. Yes, the latest developments in diagnosis and treatment are discussed - but even more so, is the quality of living itself: it's this which sets Guide To Survivorship For Women With Ovarian Cancer apart from the others on the topic of ovarian cancer.

I was diagnosed is August of 2000 with ovarian cancer and I remember seeing the Hopkins 24/7 documentary with Dr. Montz featured. I fell in love with the man and his compassion. I found this book invaluable. I am a six year survivor without recurrence and I am still learning how to be a survivor.

My wife is being treated as described, at Johns Hopkins in 2005. The book is nearly current with the world research literature on the topic, so far as we can learn. Highly recommended for patients and caregivers!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My youngest sister was 36 when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. I was 54 when I was diagnosed. Now our middle sister, who is 65 has been diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Her 'primary care' physician had been treating her for a urinary tract infection when her kidneys started to fail, and a surgeon found a 15-pound ovarian tumor the size of a soccer ball crowding out all of the other organs in her abdomen.

Ladies, even if you think you are suffering from yet another urinary tract infection, make sure your physician or PA does a physical exam. My sister's physician didn't.

This book is hard to read and I'm still debating on whether or not to send it to my middle sister, who just started chemotherapy two days ago. I did lots of research when I was diagnosed with breast cancer, but this book is even more difficult to read because the prognosis for women with ovarian cancer is even grimmer than it is for those with breast cancer. Does my middle sister really want to know at this point in her treatment that she may have to endure more than one round of debulking surgery plus chemo? According to the authors, "A large percentage of women who develop ovarian cancer will have recurrence of the disease following the appropriate aggressive initial treatments. Unfortunately, it is not likely that their cancer will be responsive to approved therapies." And the chemotherapy for ovarian cancer as described in this book makes my 6-month round of chemo sound like a walk in the park.

I will definitely send "A Guide to Survivorship for Women with Ovarian Cancer" to my youngest sister, because we are both at high risk for this disease and the authors discuss in detail what we must do to try and stay ovarian cancer-free.

This has been the best resource I have found in my efforts to serve as caretaker for a stage 3 ovarian cancer patient. People tell me "cancer is cancer" or "ask the nurse," but having ovarian cancer specific information at my disposal has been a real blessing.

Presented as an item in a gift box to a family member who was in the hospital, recovering from ovarian cancer surgery, this book was highly welcomed. My cousin appreciated it very much and told me that it was very informative and she was happy to have received it; she felt that she would benefit from it both while in the hospital and after having gotten home, preparing for her chemo and radiation therapies.
