Hi There,
it sounds like you are getting the right treatment.
The most important piece of infromation is the pathology on the right ovarian tumor.
if this is a borderline tumor, then removing it surgically is curative.

You should ask your doctor how man cases of borderline mucinous tumors are seen by the pathology department at your hospital.
If this is a rare diagnosis for your hospital, then it is crucialthat you get a second opinion on the pathology.
That would mean sending the tissue to be looked at at a major academic center that has a vast experience with these tumors such as:

Massachusetts General Hospital
Mayo Clinic
MD Anderson
Johns Hopkins
and so on.

best wishes
