Hi everyone, newbie here.
Not sure where to start.... So I am 29 years old, I have 4 young children (11, 8, 6 and my step daughter is 3). Around Christmas time I started to get pains in my left side, it was a familiar pain as 6 years ago I had my right ovary removed due to a large cyst. So I went to the doctors at the end of January and she referred me for an ultrasound and did blood tests.
At the ultrasound the sonographer said I have a tumour on my remaining ovary and I would need an MRI. Soon after I got a phone call from the doctors to say my ca125 was high at 306 (it was 60 when I had the previous cyst) so they referred me urgently to the hospital who did an MRI last week, a colposcopy and more blood tests and I am currently waiting for the results.
I hope it's ok for me to be here as I haven't been officially diagnosed as yet but I am terrified for the results and I am driving myself mad with all the possibilities, I don't know how I will cope if I have to stay in hospital for surgeries or chemo, my partner works away and I just don't know how I would cope. I don't really have any questions as such I just wanted to get my thoughts down and I know everyone here will have had the same experience, the waiting and not knowing is just horrible.
