The BEST NEWS for me today...Borderline tumour.

The surgeon confirmed today that he successfully removed the suspicious ovary that contained a Borderline tumour made up of low-grade cells that are unlikely to spread. All surrounding tissue etc and Lymph node Biopsies completely clear. No Chemotherapy needed. I feel blessed.

Needless to say, the Champagne is now open and we are starting to relax after months of tension. Initially we felt numb and exhausted, the months of worry and waiting all catching up on us. But the news has sunk in now and how lucky I have been.

I don't think you can ever put an experience like this to the back of your mind, it will stay with me forever and shape how I live my life going forward (No I am not going to have a mid life crisis, but some changes are in order).

Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for all the support you have given me over the last few months, the site is SO VALUABLE and sometimes the only place where you can be honest about what is happening and how you feel. You can pour out what is happening and other people understand as they have had the same experience.

Off to finish that Champagne now :-) Yum Yum.

Dear Elaine,

That is such brilliant news. I expect you'll be well into the celebrations by now! Enjoy. Mine was borderline and that was 10 years ago.....I'm still well so far :-) I didn't need chemo, just the op. there have been times when I have felt quite vulnerable, you never quite lose the fear.....'what if it comes back' but I feel blessed and have decided to do whatever I can to enjoy the here and now. I'm sure you will look back on this time with great thankfulness. Do keep in touch. Cheers! :-)

Love Wendy xx
