Update

Hi all, hope your all as good as you can be. Well I was going to say it seems like my chronic pain had taken a back seat to my other problems but when I woke this morning I knew I would be lying to you. I am having a really bad flare up as Iam writing (which hurts to do) As I said in my last little update they think I have ovarian cancer and after further tests last week the are very sure that Iam a high risk for ovarian cancer. Iam waiting for addenbrooks to send me an appoint which should be sooner rather than later. As of last week it has hit me that this is really happening , I thought the first couple of weeks were abit surreal anyway I will be glad when they operate and get the nuggets under a microscope and then we will know exactly whether I will need chemo or radiotherapy, anyway my question to u is . do I continue to reduce my other mess for my chronic pain, I know they have put me back on oramorph for my tummy pain but I really don't know what to do about my mess for my pain or do I just abandon the reduction of my mess until the cancer side of things are sorted ?? Leave that one with you ?? Soft hugs to u all x

  • So sorry for you to be facing that & in chronic pain too Isn't very nice. Waiting doesn't help either - inwardly the worry could well cause you to suffer more pain.

    Wishing you much luck.

    Take Care

  • Hi metty

    I'm sorry to hear your news. I also know how long and hard you've worked at reducing your pain relief meds.

    As we all know so well, any form of stress will send your pain levels rocketing.

    If I were you, I'd do everything you can to help with your stress and pain levels until you know exactly what you are dealing with after your biopsy.

    If that means taking your pain relief meds I'd take them.

    Be kind to yourself my friend

    Wishing you much peace

  • Thank you so much for your kind sensible words...I think I won't lower my meds further. I will see what happens after. My operation and then decide. Thank you soft hugs x

  • I'm so sorry, I meant to say I wish you all the luck in the world with your op.

    I hope all your results come back clear.

    Hugs to you xx

  • I don't normally reply to unlocked posts but on this occasion I'm breaking my own rule.

    I had ovarian cancer at 28. I was lucky and surgery was all I needed. It hadn't spread. It's a weird one to get your head round so I sympathise. Don't overthink things. When your mind drifts in that direction, change it! Until you know what you are facing you really can't predict or plan things.

    I wish you well with your further tests. Hopefully you'll wonder what all the fuss was about 👍🐸

  • I had an ovary removed when I was 25 which they thought was cancerous but turned out to be a large ovarian cyst which was removed along with my ovary/fallopeantube, I was very lucky I hope you are too, good luck take care

  • Thank you Iam sure it will all be ok x
