I'm Lovey, I discovered I have an immature teratoma last November and my left ovary along with the cysts were removed. January I had my omentect6omy, some of my lymph nodes were removed as well and adhesions the doctor found. My second biopsy was good because there was No Malignancies in all of the organs that they biopsied.
But the thing that I worry about is what the doctor told me, to get pregnant 6 months after my surgery. He said there is 5-10% chance my remaining ovary will have a cyst and he wants me to have a baby just in case there is recurrence. If there is, he will remove them while I am on labor (CS). learning about that scared the hell out of me. I'm only 26 and I am not financially, emotionally prepared to have a baby yet.
In my mind, I'm supposed to be working on having a career.. because before I was diagnosed, I was about to go to Singapore for work. cancer really destroyed my life and my dream. In my heart, if I will become a parent I want to be able to provide everything, but I can't do it while I'm still like this. I feel so pressured and soo stressed. I have no one here who understands what I am going thru because Ovarian cancer is not so common here, we don't even have support groups for Ovarian cancer in the Philippines. I am hoping for anyone who reads this, please if you could give some advice that would be helpful. I feel so isolated.
