Can you give us any advice for a first trip away?
Plan it well
Response by Dr Vicki Barber, GP

Plan it well: speak to your oncologist, cancer nurse and GP, take their advice about when is a good time to go if you have had surgery or chemotherapy. Make sure you don't have too frantic an itinerary; you may be more tired than you're used to and need to pace yourself. Above all, remember it's not impossible to travel and to have a great time even if you have ovarian cancer.
