Ovarian cancer, fluid drained from lungs. Which stage of cancer does she have?

Hi my mother had been diagnosed with ovarian cancer , she has had 3 litres of fluid drained from her lungs and has been sent home from hospital to wait to hear from her oncologist . Everything is very vague, we have had no answers. We are assuming it is incurable however I m interested to know if there s a stage whereby she won t be offered any treatment as the cancer is so advanced. We need to know so we can prepare, we don t know of we have days or years left with her

Hi welcome to Health care magic forum, most probably she must be 3rd stage and require only conservative treatment. Any how it is a inabsensio openion. I advise you to have a frank discussion with your doctors regarding her condition. if they are not cooperative take second advise of an oncologist.
Try to give her green leafy vegetables pulses egg milk fruits and juices which are rich in anti oxidants vitamins and proteins necessory for repair grouth of tissues and welbeing.
Wishing for a quick recovery of your mothers health. thanks for calling.
