Morning lovley ladies

As many of you know i have a complex cyst on my left ovary which was found on a ct scan which i had done for a previous surgery in january. I was sent for a ultrasound and transvangial scan then i seen a oncologist on july 12th had my preassement the next day she said i was going in for ovarys and tubes removed (BSO) just wondering if anyone else had this and why i am not having a hysterectomy (TAH). Im not to nervous about surgery its the biopsy how long do you wait for it ? And will there be a treatment for me ? I got a baby grandaugher and need to see and love the thing i am suffering with at the moment is depression its awful . Hope everyone is doing well

Take care all tracey xxx

Hi Tracey. I had a bso plus removal of omentum (no hysterectomy) for complex cyst back in 2014, I went home the next day. My results came back 3/4 weeks later as borderline, which they had suspected. I had 6 month checkups for 2 years then yearly for next 3 (2 to go)😀 Good luck with the surgery and fingers crossed you will get good results. Jenny x

Hi Tracey. Yes I was post menopause (59). My ca125 was 16, it was 17 after the op and is now 18 and has remained at 18 for the last 2 years.

Thankyou jenny i feel abit left in the dark didnt have a ct scan after the transvignal scan and pelvic ultrasound. I had the ct scan at the end of may for a major surgery i had and thats when the cyst showed up . Seen the onc who did a internal and said i would have surgery (bso) and said she didnt know if there was any cancer there and would do a biopsy i feel so depressed at the moment and scared . Thanks for the chat jenny it does help when you have lovley ladies on here to talk to ps my ca125 was normal also

Hi Tracey. Just wanted to wish you the best of luck for surgery and fast recovery. I'd consider it good news that the scope of surgery is a bit more contained than that of a full TAH or even debulking operation.. that should be good news, right?

Hang in there... you'll feel better soon. Xx. Maus

Hi Maus

Thankyou so much for your reply i hate being so negative i am so so scared not so much for the surgery as i had major surgery in january i am scared there wont be no treatment for me . I think your right but i keep over thinking everything and cant stay off Google. And my onc looked at my transvignal scan and pelvic ultrasound but didnt request a MRI and i keep thinking why didnt she .sorry for being a nuisance i hate posting but it gives me some comfort to hear from ladies like yourself .

Thank you so much maus

Take care tracey xx

This is the hardest bit - not knowing yet what exactly is the nature of the problem - and it's no surprise you are worried. Actually, it gets easier once you receive the result of the biopsy... just need to hang on in there for a bit longer. Maybe there is something you can distract yourself with, for the next days? Sending hugs. Maus

It sounds hopeful to me Tracey - it's something that has to come out but if they were very worried they'd be signing you up for hysterectomy too. Also they would have done the MRI. Take it one step at a time and focus on getting the cyst removed and then finding out if it's anything or not. If - and that's only an if, it is something there is always treatment so don't worry about that aspect. And it's often very do-able treatment. I've painted the house through my chemo, put the place up for sale and gone to work part time with no real problems. So, chin up you can do this - you're stronger than you know.

It's not the treatment that's the problem Tracey (and I mean for you at this stage, no disrespect intended to others who are much further down the line and dealing with much more). IF you have anything that requires treatment you will cope with the treatment ok. The problem is not surgery/chemo, it's worrying yourself into a frazzle about it that's the problem.

We've all been there, it's natural. I cried everytime someone said 'how are you' at one point. Try and get a lid on it somehow - I try not to let my mind go there too much. Obviously I am reading posts in here and looking things up but I'm also trying to be kind of detached about it. I'm reading it but as a matter of interest in a 'I probably won't need to know that but I'll read it in case' kind of way. I also throw myself into cleaning or painting or knitting or Netflix or cooking or anything i can find that distracts me. See if you can work on a distraction? Maybe that lovely grand daughter?

ps I'm pretty sure your family won't be expecting you to be strong. xx

Ive got to start thinking positive because my head is frazzled lynn how do i get over the depression? I am fine once its bed time as i feel safe as weird as it sounds and i also used to love the sun now i cant bare to see it out as it reminds me of good times and i keep thinking i wont get on more good times thanks so much for listening lynn . I find i am spending my time on here looking for great news but must of my time on Google. Ive even thought about not going for surgery thats how depressed i am at the moment .

Thanks so much for listening lynn

ok - deal with what you have/know and don't let any what ifs into your head.

What you know at the moment is that you have a cyst. A cyst that they are taking away very soon and then you can get on with your life and look forward to a new birth.

How lucky that the cyst has been found and treatment (surgery) has been offered. If any other treatment is needed just tell them to do it quick and get you sorted, you've a baby to plan for!

Do you knit? I'm sure there are baby things you could be knitting/buying. Have a think about what you can do to be really well in yourself while ignoring the stupid cyst thing. Are you eating well? What about building your physical strength up with walks? Concentrate on getting yourself as fit as you can.

Do you worry whether you'll get hit with a bus if you go out? Or get mugged by some random maniac on the street? I'm hoping you don't so why should this be any different?

Lynn your so right .

Yes its getting took away soon and your right there must be a treatment out there for me .

And yes i got my baby grandaugher to plan for.

I dont knit lynn but i do like spendingso thats the next best thing lol.

Yes i eat really well lynn you cant fill me or msybe im just greedy 😁

I do alot of walking lynn and i am always on the go i never sit still ive always been like that .

And your right i dont worry about getting hit by a bus or getting mugged it shoudnt be any different at all .

I think if i had the cyst out in june when i had the transvignal scan instead of waiting 6 weeks i may not of worried so much i just think does my onc know what she is doing and dont know why i wasnt offered a mri scan does she think it wasnt needed i just dont know .

I am taking all this on board you really are a inspiration and i wish you all the luck in the world you have certainly made my saturday alot brighter .

Take care tracey xx

Hi Tracey, I just would like to give a little encouragement,put your truest in your team and

yes there will be options for treatment,when I was diagnosed my family was told I would not see the years out that was 4 years ago.

Best wishes for the surgery hope all goes well and enjoy that lovely granddaughter..take care Lorraine xx

Hi lorraine

Thanks for you reply at the moment i havent got a team . I had a ct scan back in may after i had major surgery to see every thing was ok and got a call in june to say my operation was a success but it had showed up a small cyst. Was sent for a transvignal scan and c125 and ultrasound. Then came the letter to see a onc . She said she didnt know if there was any cancers there till was took out and biopsy done. Ca125 was normal but cyst had a solid area. So a (BSO) which i go in for on tuesday i just keep thinking had the ct scan in august where my surgeon who repaired my large inccaserated hernia said there was no obvious cancers then but its august now so i keep thing if the cyst is canerous its had time to spread everywhere. I cant get my head to think positive at the moment i am trying . Wow lorraine 4 years great news and may you have many more . All i want to do is be a good grandmother and love this baby with all my heart .

Take care tracey xx

Good luck with the results and I'm sure you will be a good grandmother. I have 4 grandchildren 3 now 18 and a 13 year old I love then with all my heart.

💙💙Lorraine xx

Thankyou so much Lorraine

4 grandchildren how lovley i bet they have all been spoilt .

💙💙 tracey xx

Sorry to hear about the depression you are suffering. Have you thought of antidepressants to take the edge of it. At least you get a good night’s sleep if you pick the right one. I find my mood lifts in the evening but it can be a long day trying to find things to distract you from it. I find reading and puzzles help as does cake! I hope you pick up soon. We wouldn’t be normal if we didn’t get down with all the uncertainty ahead. Good luck!

Hi juliamillen

Thankyou you for your reply. I havent seen my doctor but i think after surgery on tuesday it will be a must to see her for some antidepressants. I am the same i feel depressed all day then by the evening i feel alot better i will try some puzzles and cake yes its a must and chocolate lol . How true its only natural we feel depressed with all whats going on my head is like a toy shop if you get what a mean 😁.

Thankyou so much
