Paula gives advice she shares with women who are undergoing chemotherapy treatments for ovarian cancer.

Paula:
That’s hard. I try not to tell them too much because they are first going through this. Some of them are, and some of them have been through it more than I have. So, I try not to tell them anything too much that’s going to make them feel that they don’t want to do this, that they have to kind of find out for themselves. But when they tell me something, I will agree with them and tell them, “Yes, that’s what happens, and that’s not unusual and it will pass.”

That’s, when I went through the first or the second round of chemo, and I was feeling so sick from it, you know, I would call the office and say, “I can’t get off the couch. All I can do is sit and read a book.” And the nurse’s answer to me was, “So sit on the couch and read a book.” And that you just have to wait and that’s the hard part. You have to wait until the symptoms pass because they wil, and then, unfortunately, you start all over again.
