Managing Ovarian Cancer - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: You or someone you care about may have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer. This video will help you understand how to manage it. The ovaries are two glands in a woman's pelvis. They produce eggs for reproduction and make hormones. Ovarian cancer is a disease in which cancer cells grow out of control in your ovaries. Treatment for ovarian cancer may remove or destroy the cancer. After treatment, it's very important to have a follow-up care plan. This includes going to all follow-up appointments. Your doctor will want to check to see if the cancer has returned and check for health problems resulting from treatment. You will likely need to see your doctor often after your treatment. Ask about what kind of schedule you can expect. If you are on any medications, continue to take them as prescribed by your doctor. Take note of any side effects and tell your doctor. If you had surgery on your ovaries or other treatments, follow any instructions you were given. You may also need to make some of the following healthy lifestyle changes. Don't smoke, and limit how much alcohol you drink. Both of these activities may increase your risk of cancer. Eat a healthy diet with more fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. A healthy diet may reduce the risk of your cancer coming back. Become physically active. Daily exercise and activities can help you feel better. It is important to speak with your doctor before starting an exercise plan or making lifestyle changes. Keep in mind that some cancer treatments can make you feel very tired. Ask your doctor what you can do to help you feel less tired. Knowing you have cancer can be overwhelming. You may have worries about things like your condition and how it affects your family, treatments and hospital stays, medical bills, and your job. Fortunately, there are ways to cope with this. Talk to your health care team. They can help you find the support that's right for you. The following sources of support can help you cope with your concerns-- social workers, church leaders, counselors, and support groups. Talk to your doctor if you have any questions about your treatment plan, medications, or lifestyle changes to help you manage ovarian cancer.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"The Doe Report's Do-It-Yourself Exhibits program enables easy customization of complex medical exhibits at a reasonable expense and in a timely manner. Practically speaking, custom medical exhibits are no longer an unthinkable luxury, but a routine necessity."

"I wanted to thank you for the terrific job you did illustrating my client's injuries. The case was settled at the pre-suit mediation, and I believe a good part of the success we had was due to the medical legal art you prepared.

Your work received the ultimate compliment at the conclusion of the mediation. The hospital risk manager took the exhibit with them at the conclusion of mediation, and will be using it to train nurses on how to prevent bed sores..."

"Our firm was able to settle our case at an all day mediation yesterday and I am confident that the detail and overall appearance of the medical illustrations significantly contributed to the settlement. When we require medical illustrations in the future, I will be sure to contact [MLA]."

"[Your staff] was extremely efficient, cooperative and gracious and [their] efforts produced a demonstrative exhibit that we used effectively throughout our trial. The jury verdict of $3,165,000.00 was, in no small measure, due to the impact of the demonstrative evidence. You may be sure that we will call again."
