Yes, I'm here again. I warned everyone I'd be a pest as surgery drew closer. Please forgive -- I'm a mess.
Has anyone heard of a mucinous cystadenoma? A mucinous adenocarcinoma? If so, what are the characteristics of both? I know the second is malignant, and I assume the first is benign? Has anyone here had either? If so, what are the symptoms, and how good is the prognosis?
Hi Hudson --
My question is because the doctor said it could be a cystadenoma. He said if it is a cystadenoma, it would probably be the mucinous kind because of its size.
Tomorrow. Gosh, this is really tough, isn't it?!
Thanks for your answer, though.
Hi there; I had a mucinous adenocarcenoma stage IC.....diagnosed last April 25....chemo started in May and ended in September....just had my six month check up two weeks ago and my ca125 remains 3.5.......hopefully this will continue in my favor and never return!
My symptoms were pretty basic complaints....pain with entercourse, low back ache (sometimes going down the right leg), pressure on the rectum, slight weight gain, tired, and difficulty with urination just before being diagnosed.
The gyn thought I had fibroids until he saw the ultrasound...I had surgery 36 hours later.
I had an excellent gyn/onc surgeon and because of him, and my early diagnosis, my prognosis is excellent.
You are correct in saying this is scary.....it is down right horrifying! You are allowed to be horrified, furious, anxious,desiring to scream and cry at the same time....every emotion possible is spinning you in circles right now....of course you are scared......something would be srong if you weren't.
I haven't been watching closely...when is your surgery? The sooner you get it behind you the better, as that is when you will know what is going on...and if need be, you and your team of doctors and nurses can creat a battle plan just for you.
Knowledge is power.....it is the lack of knowledge that keeps us in the dark, and the dark can be scarey. I will watch for you tonight....if you want to talk just speak up!
May Peace be with you.
Hello again....I just read your previous post.....I had a laparotomy.......my incision went from my pubic bone to just below my navel.....I think I am the only one whe didn't ccount my staples!! I don't know what I was thinking!! HaHa!! Anyway, my surgery went well....I was walking the night of my surgery....it was a 41/2 hour procedure (my husband says 5 1/2) and I had no problems after the surgery.....I healed quickly with no set backs at all (until I rolled our Park Avenue and landed upside down in a ditch....had to call 911 and ended up taking a ride to the ER in an ambulance.....not even one staple was pulled but I was black and blue from the wine bottles in the recycle bag in the back seat...I wanted pictures of my son at the senior prom.....this was the Sat after my Wed surgery and Mon diagnosis!! I was busy!).
Tomorrow is a good day....You will be empowered tomorrow because KNOWLWDGE will begin comming your way.....your answers will begin to be answered tomorrow. I am happy for you....all this fear and dread will be behind you......no more waiting.
That is great! I await your tails of success!
I wish you Peace!
