December 2007 had pain left ovary, much like ovulation pain (couldn't be that since I'm postmenopausal) And it was more severe.Thought perhaps Diverticulitis since I'd had that before . The pain radiated to back , slightly queasy.. Went to Dr. .. not diverticulitis. Had
[More] a routine Gyn appt. following week .It was suggested I have the Transvaginal Ultrasound which indicated a small cyst, perhaps fibroma. I was given the CA-125 test only because I was postmenopausal and cysts are a bit more worrisome at that age. I also had 2 small fibroids, and fluid in uterus neither which should have been there. Ca-125 was low.
A laparoscopy was performed removing the ovary along with cyst. D&C for the fluid and the fibroids were checked out. All benign .. I was told I could have monitored this cyst for a few months, but I chose to have the procedure instead. At my age, it was not a problem to have the ovary removed. I remain on both Ovca and Ovcy boards to share my experience and perhaps ease any fears especially in postmenopausal women having the same anxiety that I had
Hi there! How is your winter going? I'm coming along, still trying to learn to live with the fibro and Lupus. We booked a holiday in St. Lucia in March and desperately wishing it was earlier. Miss you and hope all is well.
I will keep you posted Sandy! Can you believe this weather? Possible snow tonight where I live, lol. Of course, it is that stuff that comes down and melts before it hits the ground. You have to literally be out there when it happens. I have seen it twice in my lifetime here.
I am sitting here listening to Jimmy Buffets new CD, my son gave it to us for Christmas. I feel like a pina colada. Do you think that counts as liquids in the hospital?
I will let you all know as soon as I can. Will probably try to get Jerry to post but he is not very good with the computer, so maybe he can call someone and they can post! Maybe Lori or ButterflyTc, he has met them.
Love and hugs,
My surgery is January 12th at 7am! I am somewhat nervous but will be glad to have answers and feel better again. Yes, it is so cold here. 29 this morning. I am sitting here in my pjs and a flannel shirt and I am still cold. How about you???
