For those who aren’t on twitter and haven’t heard, my cousin, who is just 52, was diagnosed with ovarian cancer a short time ago. She is currently in ICU after enduring multiple blood clots and then a rare reaction to her blood thinner.
I am amazed that it took her doctors so long to give her a proper diagnosis as she was having symptoms such as bloating, abdominal pain, leg and feet pain and loss of appetite for some time. Ovarian cancer is often not caught until it’s in advanced stages so it’s important to know the signs and symptoms. She mistakenly chalked a lot of her symptoms up to a horrible menopause.
