Chemotheraphy for ovarian cancer

My sister has stage 1 ovarian cancer but due to her hyperthyroidism ( her physician told her about the possiblity of uncontrolled bleeding) she will just do chemotheraphy instead.

Sorry to hear about your sister. I have no experience with this. I have moved your post to cancer forum. Hopefully, other people with experience in this area will be able to help and support you and your sister. Good luck.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Chemotherapy has excellent response in ovarian cancer even if its stage 3 unless there are worse prognostic factors.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
