Hearing you have breast cancer can turn your world upside down.
OWise breast cancer can help you during and after your treatment by bringing all the information around your condition and wellbeing together and giving you a clear overview of everything you need to know. It also offers tips on issues to discuss with your doctor and can help you decide on the treatment that is best for you.
Have a look at the OWise Flyer or
The "How do I feel right now?" banner can be found throughout the website so that you can easily record how you feel. Doing this frequently helps you see how your symptoms develop, which you can share with your doctor or nurse.
With a few clicks you can add the treatments you are or will be receiving, and the OWise treatment plan will give you a clear overview of the progression of your treatments over months and years. Here you can also find a report with information on your type of breast cancer and information regarding the treatments you may be prescribed. This tailored report is dependent on the profile details you have entered; if you adjust them your report changes accordingly. Treatment information is carefully sourced from the most recent national guidelines for the treatment of breast cancer and can help you discuss appropriate treatments with your doctor.
The OWise mobile app and the website are synchronised so that your information will always be up to date, no matter how you access it.
When you frequently check into "How do I feel right now" you can generate your own graphs to track how your wellbeing and complaints develop over time. Currently, you can record 14 different trends, including:
- fatigue - pain - body temperature
- sleep quality - appetite - leukocytes
- sickness - lymph oedema - erythrocytes
- physical effort - low mood - thrombocytes
- brain function - weight
You can print out your graphs to bring to your doctor or nurse practitioner in order to discuss your complaints and wellbeing in detail.
Having all your questions and answers together can help you create a useful dossier of the information that is most important to you. If you prefer to focus on the conversation with your doctor rather than taking notes, you can use the OWise mobile app to record your discussion.
