Hello lovely people,
Back in June, I had my first op to remove what they thought was a large ovarian cyst. After histology, this was confirmed to be a muscinous tumour and on Tuesday next week, I go in for my second op to remove the right ovary, fallopian tube and appendix as well as have biopsies taken from my omentum.
At my pre-op on Monday, I was told I will have to inject Fragmin daily for 28 days post surgery. I know a lot of people have probably had this so just wanted to ask how you got on with it. I'm only 33 and nervous about another op recovery (as I developed a rather large haematoma after the last one, which set me back a few weeks and i'm only now feeling my normal self!) I'm also nervous because I've been told that these things tend to have a high reoccurrence rate.
My medical team are aware that I have a 3 week trip planned to South Africa on 1st Sept so it will be all systems go on the recovery front. It's giving me something amazing to look forward to after a few months of all this nonsense. I'm just praying all goes to plan on Tues and nothing scuppers my travel plans (as they've been in the diary since Dec last year!)
