I'm home and recovering....

Thank you everyone for your thoughts and prayers!  Something worked as the surgery went very well.  They did end up taking everything (TAH/BSO along with appendix).  Apprarently I went to the doctor at the right time, as my cyst was/is cancerous and was contained - so no chemo or radiation will be needed.  I don't have the biopsy results yet and will go back to have my staples removed this Friday....so hopefully I will know more.  My Gyn said that I will have another CA125 pulled (probably on Friday) with additioanl follow up visits, but not sure what that will be.

I'm very glad to be home...Saturday night was hell once they took me off the morphine drip - it took a while to find something that would cut the pain.

Again, thank you and my thoughts are prayers are with everyone!!
