Hi eveyone hope you are all doing well. Hope you all had a lovely christmas and new year. I don't know whether you all remember me I had my op in september 25th it turned out to be a borderline tumour stage 1a musenous. I am still doing well my scar is healing but it has left my tummy looking lopsided lol. But hey I'm not complaining I am lucky that's all I have to contend with. I have got to have an mri scan again due to severe pain in my lower back but the doctors think its unrelated an maybe to do with worn discs I hope so. I have been refered for post operative stress counselling as I've become very stresed an tearful of late my doctor thinks its this so I have an appointment to go and see a counsellor for assesment on the 24th of this month . I thought it was the change but apparently its too early for the change even though I'm getting hot flushes. I'll let you know how I get on . My best wishes an soft hugs to you all xxxxxxx

. Ps . I still light a candle every evening for you all which represents hope for finding a cure for everyone. Xxxx. : )

Hi! I'm glad you're recovering and getting the post-op support you need. Hope the counselling works and helps you to get over this frightening experience. It's good to hear that you're doing well.

Love Wendy xx

Hi there.. I'm really pleased for you .. Glad you've made a good physical recovery. I had psychotherapy because I found it very hard to deal with my misdiagnosis. I found it hard to know my life could have been so much different had I been diagnosed much earlier than I was. The therapy helped very much. Love to you .. Tina

Hi all and thank you, at least I know im not the only one and its normal, I'm feeling a little better today , just feel so guilty because I have had all clear now . I am so happy mine was a good outcome ive been told by GP its Post operative stress and I'd just need a few sessions with a counsellor, so im hoping this will do the trick. best wishes lena xx

Hey Lena, don't feel guilty about anything- what you have gone through is major surgery and a life changing experience. Hoping the sessions are really helpful- I'm sure they will be. In the meantime you do anything and everything that makes you happy - it's only 4 months since your op xxx

Thank you janette, for being so understanding, everyone is so good on here , I hope you are doing well and still fighting on . I have to agree with your post the symptoms of ovarian cancer are not public enough and I to spread the word about the symptoms. God bless big hugs xxxx

I love this comment , do everything that makes you happy, that has helped me.

Lena, how fab is your GP ! Talking to an independent person can be really good. Take tissues and don't be afraid to cry x x

Thank you langstone lady, tissues are an excellent idea and the support you've given me is much appreciated big hugs xxxx

Lena has your doctor suggested HRT for the flushes? For years i'd asked for it but as had a bad back and history of breast cancer they refused me them and was a right narky cow!! following op i was red hot all time- and hey presto have the patches now which have made a huge difference (tho when the hubby strolled in at 6am steaming after his works do they didn't stop the rage then!!! lol) xxxxx

Hi janette I was offered hrt by my oncologist but I refused it as I've heard such bad things about it do you think I should try it then . Some people have said it made them really bad very depressed and some said made them suicidal .How long have you had them and are there any side effects ? Also do they drastically reduce the hot flushes I been taking evening primrose oil for hot flushes they do limit them as well as make your skin nails and hair lovely . Do you think I should give HRT a go then . Hugs lena xxx
