Im back home after my surgery. Im feeling great (a bit sore but not as much as I thought I would). The surgeons removed my ovaries, tubes, womb, omentum and appendix. Unfortunately my consultant told me the next day that it is almost certainly cancer that was also evident in my spleen and diaphram. They didnt remove my spleen as they felt it would be too traumatic for one surgery. So depending on the lab results I will have chemo and then more surgery. I will know in 8 days when I see my consultant what the plan of action is. They still are not sure where the cancer originated but this should be more clear when the lab results come back. I am so much more comfortable now the big tumour has gone. I was really blown away by the courage and optimism of one very eldery lady in my ward who had the same op as me. For someone of that age to come out of major surgery and still be smiling and joking is an inspiration and I will never forget her! My family and friends have all been amazing and I am lucky to have their support even if they do make me laugh (it really hurts!).
Fingers crossed for next Friday.
