View Full Version : Removal of Bloodclots before Exploratory Ov. Cancer surgery

08-10-2009, 05:32 PM
Last Friday my aunt was diagnosed with Stage III Ovarian Cancer. She is in the hospital right now because she has several large blood clots around her body, the majority being in her liver and lungs. She is on blood thinners and they are contemplating blood clot scrapping to remove the blood clots. Is there anyone else out there who knew someone or who themselves had this happen? Also, does anyone know the survival rate of Stage III Ovarian Cancer? I'm not sure whether it's a, b, or c. :(
