Waiting and wondering

Hello ladies,

I had my laparoscopy on Friday 7/10/09 and had my ovaries and tubes removed after a barage of tests for low back/pelvic pain that radiated down my left femur, bloating, fatigue, bowel problems and just plain feeling horrible. The doctor was expecting to see a lot of scar tissue/adhesions but only found some on the ovaries. I had my uterus & cervix removed 20 years ago. My CA125 was normal ( 9.9) Trans vaginal ultra sound appeared normal. MRI and nuclear bone scan normal. The pain in my low back and pelvis is gone (just the post-op pain now which is nothing compared to what I was experiencing!) I feel sooooo much better already. I am 54 years old and am just waiting and wondering about the biopsy report now on my ovaries.I am certain all the problems I was experiencing was related to my ovaries...I just hope they removed all the "problem" with them and am anxious for the path report.  Just thought I would share. God Bless.
