Omg I’m so sorry to hear this, I can’t really say I’ve been in your shoes but my Aunty had ovarian cancer at a very young age. She too had three children. What does your dr suggest? Do you want any more kids, if not getting rid of the ovaries (and anything else affecting your health I.e. hysterectomy) would be something I personally would consider. I hope your ok xx

Thank you and I'm still waiting on an appointment 4 the hospital I would like another child but worried now cause of having pcos so I don't thunk I can have anymore

I’ve got one and struggling to have another, endo (possibly PCOS too) has gone too far and I’m looking at ivf. It’s entirely your choice, you’ll just have to keep an eye on it if you choose to leave it but good luck whatever you decide to do xx
