As expected I am to have another operation in Early December to remove the latest tumour. This is, my surgeon tells me unusual in ovarian cancer as it is often diffuse. This tumour however is very distinct and given that I am very well in myself surgery is the best option before it causes a blockage to the bowel. I shall have the services of the gynae surgeon and a bowel specialist so I will be in good hands. They will use the same scar (very disappointing - my grandsons and I were planning on playing noughts and crosses). Can't say I am looking forward to a colostomy but I hear of loads of people who have got used to it very quickly and it should not rule out the aquarobics! he real bad news this morning was the collision with another car as we entered the hospital grounds. Still my insurers *(Priviledge) are very efficient and the car has already been collected for assessment and repair. I shall refuse the hire car I think as, if they decide it was 50/50 or my fault I could be lumbered with a big bill and I prefer to avoid that.
My real hope is that the op is early not mid December as the latter would prevent me being able to go to my daughter's in London for Xmas and could mean serious inconvenience all round. I shall have to test the reliability of local bus services while I am car less!
