In brief: It depends
Ovarian cancer that is caught early enough can be cured with surgery and you can live a normal life.
Ovarian cancer that can't be cured can be treated repeatedly. Many women live for years with ovarian cancer with intermittent treatment, but each case is different. This is something you should ask your oncologist to be very honest about.

In brief: It depends on
The stage and type of ovarian cancer.
Patient's overall fitness also plays a role as far how much chemotherapy and for how long they can receive it if the cancer recurrs.
