Take a deep breath and...

As most of you readers know, my medical journey has taken up most of my thoughts in my free time for the past couple months.

Well, it’s finally happening.

Surgery is scheduled for 7/12.

Yes, I’m hopeful that everything will turn out okay once they biopsy the hell outta this nasty ovary and figure out what’s going on.
I already know I don’t have to worry about Endometrial cancer. That’s a relief! One down, one to go!

Yes, I’m nervous. I’ve never had ANY sort of major surgery before. A few minor procedures, but that’s about it. So this will be a new experience for me.

It is a light at the end of the tunnel, which is the positive I’m working on focusing on right now (over the stomach-roiling-anxiety any major surgery brings). It’s a laparoscopic procedure, but it will most likely result in removal of my right ovary (oopherectomy), though I asked him to see if he can just remove the cyst and growth instead IF possible. At least it’s not a radical hysterectomy!



  1. I'm glad we have a date - prayers going up for you.
