hi all I'm new to the site, I have recently been diagnosed with possible ovarian cancer they wont be 100% sure until they take the mass that is the size of a small caser out which is attached to my ovarie as well as my ovaries some of the stomach lining as well as various other bits . There not sure whether it has attached to the bowel area or the bladder. I'm currently waiting surgery within the next two weeks and I'm absolutely petrified of the thought of the surgery. I think I can deal with it if its cancer, but I'm terrified of not coming round after wards and of what I will come round too. The gynae oncologist has assigned a MacMillan nurse to me which tells me they think its cancer but at what stage I don't know yet. I have had the booklet explaining the surgery and what to expect afterwards but reading it and coming round to it are two different things. I have had partial hysterectomy some 10 years ago but they left my ovaries in . They have said if it test positive for cancer that my chemo will start 4 weeks later .I am currently experiencing severe back and tummy ache sickness and headaches as well as fatigue. My question is can anyone tell me what to expect from surgery, recovery time and how you coped when you got home . I feel like shouldn't be on here because I have not been given a firm diagnosis yet but needed to ask some questions. I hope I don't upset anyone as it is not my intention. I would be extremely grateful of any feed back. My best wishes to you all .xxxxx
