Having chemo before ovarian cancer surgery has significant benefits!

by , 26 May 2015

If you have ovarian cancer, here's some good news.

A new British study, published earlier this month in The Lancet, has found that undergoing chemotherapy before ovarian cancer surgery can make your surgery safer, your stay in hospital shorter and your quality of life better.

Read on for the full scoop.

New study suggests that chemotherapy before ovarian cancer surgery can bring about many benefits
 

The study, led by Sean Kehoe, professor of gynaecological cancer at the University of Birmingham, involved 550 patients. Half underwent the standard treatment of surgery followed by six cycles of chemotherapy, while the other half had three cycles of chemo before surgery.
 
Researchers found that the risk of complications and death within 28 days after surgery was significantly lower among patients who had chemo before surgery. They also found that these patients had fewer side effects, spent less time in the hospital and experienced a better quality of life after surgery.

The real key to healing cancer is to wipe out the stealth disease lurking behind it...
 
I admit I was downright shocked when I found out that cancer isn't actually what kills most cancer patients! And I've been a doctor for well over 20 years - so not much surprises me anymore.
 
Even more astounding - this monumental discovery goes back to the 1970s when former US Air Force Dr Joseph Gold uncovered the REAL killer, a condition that no one in the medical field was even talking about!
 
That's right - the real culprit behind 3 out of every 4 cancer deaths isn't cancer at all. No! It's a syndrome you've probably never even heard of - called cachexia (pronounced "ka-kek-see-ah").

Reduce side effects and hospital stay without compromising your chances of survival
 

Peter Johnson, chief clinician at Cancer Research UK, commented on the findings: “Whether to have chemotherapy before major surgery for ovarian cancer has always been a dilemma for women and their surgeons.”
 
Thanks to this study, we can say that having chemotherapy makes sense. 
 
Professor Kehoe agreed with the comments.
 
“The trial showed that shrinking the tumour (with chemotherapy) before surgery reduced side effects and hospital stay – meaning improved quality of life, without compromising survival, which is better for patients.”
 
If you’ve been debating whether or not to opt for chemo before surgery, this news could be just what you’ve been looking for.
