Hi there, I am early in my diagnosis and feel the need to investigate all the issues I'm most concerned about.
My question is......how many of you have had a recurrence after a surgical spill? What time had passed? Or are there any of you without recurrence even though your tumor cells were spilled during surgery?
During my surgery for endometriosis, my surgeon openly drained my tumor as he thought it was a cyst. When he got the pathology report back it was a shock.
I then had surgery to remove the offending ovary and omentum. I was expecting that my oncologist would perform washing's, especially due to the spillage but my CNS said it was too late to do a wash and that a wash can only be done at the time of the actual spillage.......is this right?
I now feel worried about these rogue cells swishing around inside my pelvis unchecked.
I had LMP tumor, stage 1. My pathology report is in the post to me.
I would appreciate your thoughts x
