Good morning everyone,
Well I appear to have danced in Hell over the last few weeks, so thought I would share my story on here to hopefully gain some support from other sisters!I had major surgery 3 months ago to remove my gallbladder that I had an infection in that turned into gangarene so I'm lucky to be alive! My surgeon sent me for a CT scan 2 weeks ago because I am still in a lot of pain and fatigued all the time!the scan detected a 4 half cm cyst like lump on my right ovary, he reassured me not to worry as most of these things are Benign, and if it was anything nasty they have caught it early! He completed a urgent referel to Gyne and I had a transvaginal ultrasound the following week and then referred to the rapid access clinic. Myself and family have been worried sick I hardly slept and jus couldn't function! I had my appointment on Friday, my blood tests came back not showing cancer and the Dr, who was lovely with a very calming and pleasent demeanour, advised I was very low risk 1%, of it being cancer and that I had two options, monitor it that included regular scans and blood tests or have surgery to remove it and the right ovary, I opted for surgery as we have a strong history of breast cancer, so I shall be having it after Xmas. Huge relief for us all although I am still worried as he said he can't confirm its not cancer! Would jus like to hear other people's experiences and if it is Cancer, would leaving it for a further 3 months be ok? Also I forgot to ask in that time would it be monitored, just Incase it has changed etc?
Thankyou everyone xxx
