Thanks ladies for getting in touch. Julie, I hope this worrying phase is soon over for you. Times can be really testing but thank goodness for the support networks we have. Thinking of you and praying also everything turns out for you. Dreading my surgery next week. How I am going to get through this week, another week of worry. Still, work and a 2 year old will keep me going I'm sure.
Thank you for sharing your story Ireneo. I was so relieved to hear that your cyst was benign, hopefully mine will be too. My baby is growing well so I must focus on that thought.I will let you know how things go for me.
Take care ladies
I'm not pregnant, too old for that, but I also had a large cyst appear which was surprising. I'm post menopausal and I thought my reproductive organs had shut down. Anyway, my cyst kept growing and went from 7cm at diagnosis to 10cm by the time I had surgery. I also lost my ovary and tube with the removal of the cyst. But there was no sign of cancer. The statistics say 90-95% of ovarian cysts are benign. I know we all worry about being in the other 5% or so. But the CA125 number is good for you. What would be more worrisome is if it was high. CA125 in younger women can be elevated for so many other reasons besides cancer that it ends up scaring people. In your case it's a good reading.
Most likely your surgery will go smoothly and your pregnancy will continue without much problem. There are plenty of women that have to have surgery during a pregnancy for various reasons. They will monitor the baby closely as well as you.
I know the "what if's" are eating you alive but keep moving forward, get that annoying cyst(s) and ovary out of there. Please let us know how things go after it's done.
I am also in the freaking out phase after they found a mass where I don't even have an ovary(it was removed several years ago). I don't have an answer to your question, but I am sorry you are going through this while you are pregnant. I have had 2 surgeries while pregnant and both times my babies were fine. I will be praying for a positive outcome for you.
