I am 26 and found out I had a borderline ovarian tumor which they removed but I am due to have an operation on the 24th that will remove my right Ovary and tube, my appendix and my Omentum all in one go.
As the operation is fastly approaching I am feeling very scared and nervous about it as you all are aware of these feelings prior to the OP.
Does anyone have any advice or tips of how to cope with this Op as it seems I have underestimated the impact it will have on me , I assumed I'd be fine after 2 weeks like the operation to remove the tumor, however I feel like that may not be the case after reading some stories on here.
Also what side effects am I likely to notice following the operation?
How does this operation effect me in the long term?
I have tried to explain my feelings to friends and family but as they aren't and never have been through this It's hard for them to understand, and I would never wish them to go through this !
Any comments and tips and just general support would be welcome
