Hi I wanted to give you an update on what happened, after I found a 23cm cyst/tumour with septations on my left Ovary in Oct last year. I had endless tests, but the conclusion, was it looked almost certainly malignant. I had a TAH, appendicectomy, omentectomy and cervix removal on 30th Nov last year. I felt like I had been under a steam roller, but went home the next day, as I felt being with my family would help me recover faster, was a battle, eventually they agreed. I then had to wait 9 days for the hystology, again was told as the tumour was in mucinous fluid, it could be cancer. The waiting took an eternity, but the hystology came back as borderline, not benign but not malignant. Happy news, not realy as my surgeon/oncologist, was still not convinced, as the hystology was so rare. He sent it to a Professor McCluggage in N Ireland, who is the Country, if not the world's expert in OC. He came to the same conclusion, a very rare hystology, with all the ingriedients of OC, but not.
I have had a few urine infections and bowel problems, but they have settled down now. I am back at work, but felt so tired, everything was an effort. So last week I was given Estraderm patches and Testosterone gel, so will see if that helps.
The main reason I have written this, is to offer hope, to those, who feel as I did, when my tumour was first found, that even if all the signs are there, it does not mean you have OC,
