It’s not definite, (yet) but we might be moving to the Carribean. G has had several interviews over the last few weeks and on Monday he was told he had got the job! There are still loose ends to tie … Continue reading
I would say that for the most part, I am finally pretty strong about having a childless future. Yes, I do get upset from time to time, but I am able to get through a day without thinking about it, … Continue reading
Last week I tried to wear my jeans, but within ten minutes of wearing them I had to whip them off again because it was far too uncomfortable along my scar. Not anymore! The random stabbing pain that I have … Continue reading
I’m not sure if it’s hormones or what, but for the past few days I’ve felt on verge of tears. I did cry yesterday, twice, but I’m not sure why. I have been reading comments from a forum for women … Continue reading
There’s a week to go before I have my ovary removed and I am becoming more anxious as the date gets closer. Today I saw an anesthetist, not my anesthetist unfortunately, but one that will pass on my information. The … Continue reading
I’ve signed away my ovary today. I have also given surgeon permission to take my other ovary during the operation, should the frozen biopsy come back as borderline. I was surprised to hear that cysts don’t always return, which made … Continue reading
I’ve decided to keep one ovary. I have more questions for the consultant, but after thinking about it carefully, I believe I would be jumping the gun a bit if I got rid of it unecessarily. So, I might need it removing eventually, but I might not, and if I remove it now there’s no turning back. That scares me a bit. I would be stuck with HRT until I’m in my 50s which seems quite a long way away right now. On top of that HRT might not be very healthy for me, and if it’s not crucial that I go on it, then I should really hold off for as long as possible.
I’m seeing the consultant again on Friday and the anesthetist next Thursday. I need to write down a list of questions before then, but I’m pretty certain I’ve made my mind up.
I saw my consultant yesterday and although she can’t be 100% sure, she doesn’t think my cysts are cancerous. The cyst on my left ovary looks borderline as it has a node and blood vessels, so that ovary has to … Continue reading
I had a letter from the hospital yesterday to let me know I have an appointment to see the consultant this Friday. It’s all very quick which makes me feel nervous to say the least. It’s at the cancer clinic again, but apparently this is purely because it has the facilities and comfort that is needed. If they think beige walls, hard floors and plastic chairs are comfortable then they are misguided! I know they are trying to put my mind at ease, but it isn’t working. At least G is coming with me to my appoinment this time so we can be nervous and scared together.
Please let them just be cysts!
I’m in a support group on facebook for people who are childless. At the moment the hot topic is mother’s day, and how upsetting it is for everyone with fertility issues. I am quite lucky because don’t feel affected ( … Continue reading
