Hello dear. I appreciate your concern. At this stage of disease a patient usually can live up to 3 to 5 years, sometimes more if chemotherapy really works well. However ovarian cancer usually re appears after sometime so repeated treatment in the form of chemo and re surgery may be required. Hope that solves your query.
