Hi, I am 33yrs old. In 2015 I was diagnosed with a large ovarian cyst. After this operation I was diagnosed with a serous borderline stage 3C tumour and had another operation. In December 2019 I was found to have relapsed and was diagnosed with the same condition as I had in 2015. So In January 2020 the remaining ovary has been wedged to remove the tumor. I am on 3months follow ups and since the surgery all is stable.
It has been reccomended to perform with fertility preservation as I have not had children yet and I am not planning to have it now. This would involve extracting the eggs (freezing them) during the surgery and removing the remaining ovary. There is a high risk that the tumor might come back. The doctors say is 50/50% and it might come back as a cancer.
As a consequence of removing the ovary, I would have to go through early menopause and take hormons. Could you please give me your thoughts on how do you feel on hormones? As I am torn between keeping the ovary and risking that it might come back but nobody knows if will or not or removing it and going thrugh menopause. Thanks a lot!
