My op went ok and I'm feeling ok, just knackered after the simplest of tasks, which I'm sure is perfectly normal
When my consultant did his rounds the day of my op I was still away with the fairies and obviously didn't take in what he was saying. He came round again the night before I left hospital and I was intrigued to find that my 'left' ovary cyst actually was growing from the right ovary! Is that common? Sounds a bit bizarre to me!
He also told me that they had found early stage endometrial cancer and were pretty confident that they had removed it all so I may not need any more treatment for that. Obviously we are waiting on histology, but it still looks like my ovaries could be benign. He took an omentum biopsy and did an abdominal wash, but my lymph nodes looked ok so they are still there.
I was probably one of the few people on being told they had cancer were not shocked at the word cancer, but more at the location! Just think, if I hadn't had the ovarian screening I would have had no idea that I had endometrial cancer. Someone somewhere must be looking out for me. I feel so lucky. I know that sounds odd too, 'lucky' to have cancer....but I'm sure you will understand what I mean.
