Interesting day at Guys Genetic Centre today. When I had my BRACA test it was negative, but they identified a BRIP1 mutated gene, which is a lower than BRACA cause of OC, but still significant. My daughter decided to be tested, so we went to see a geneticist , who talked her through the process. If she is positive they are very clear that she should have her ovaries and Fallopian tubes removed.
So she went to have the blood lest. She didn't actually faint, but it was close! Can't imagine how she would get through surgery. She is genuinely needle phobic. Oddly enough I discovered recently that both her brothers are too. Now there's a useful genetic link!
