I’ve just got back from the hospital, where I didn’t go for a scan after all, but to see a surgeon.
It appears that the huge cyst has hard patches, which are cancerous, so they will have to remove, rather than drain it. They will remove it, along with the ovary it’s attached to. Then they will take out my other ovary and give me a full hysterectomy. My guess is that, at my age, they may as well take away the chance of any possible future problems while they are there.
She will meet up with the team that do the cancer ops, to discuss options and to see who should take me on. She usually performs the ops that are not cancer related, but is uncertain of mine. I take that as a good sign, that she thinks she may possibly do mine. She also said that it is not an urgent operation but, for my sake the sooner they get it out the better. I agree.
I go to see her again on the 14th to find out who will do the op and when.
So, although it’s not good news. It could be worse, couldn’t it?
I included a photo of my huge belly this time. I told you I looked pregnant, didn’t I? The Surgeon actually said the op would be made easier for me as I was slim, so that gives me hope once this huge thing has gone.
