I'm post menopausal, developed a large cyst on my left ovary. I was also told I would need surgery and would have an oncologist on hand to deal with any complications. Not news I wanted to hear. I had my ovary, tube and a 10 cm cyst removed. No sign of cancer.
What we need to remember is over 95% of cysts are NOT malignant. I still think it's a shame that even a small amount of them do turn out bad but hang on to the odds that yours is probably just some nasty thing that needs to be removed and that's it. You won't know until they get in there. It's so hard to wait and wonder. We've all been through that. Just one step at a time. Please keep us posted as you go along. The women here know exactly how you feel.
thank you sooo much Ireneo... its hard to know that so many women are going thru this, but on the other side of the scope, its feels better to know there are people to help you get thru this. I do have plans to go to a hospital known for being "the best" on tuesday. Hopefully they can help me and set my mind at ease. thank you for your words and encouragement. I will make sure i update to let you know how it went.
That would be great. I'm wishing and hoping for good news for you. I remember how difficult it was to wait and worry.
What are they doing on Tuesday? The surgery?
not really sure...im definately hoping so! going in thru an ER at this hospital. and i guess we are going from there.
