I'm due to have an operation this month(no date yet) as dermoid cyst on
left ovary needs to be removed for biopsy.
I'm 52 & have experienced missed periods and spotting over the last 2
years and no periods at all in the last 3 months(menopausal).
I'me stunned by this as although I have been in & out of hospital with
kidney stones since April last year and this 'mass' was found in May the
Drs in the Urology Ward forgot to refer me to Gynaecology. They also told me it was nothing to worry about because I'me menopausal & have a low
'Cancer score' which meant nothing to me. In only 1 consultation I have
been advised to have both ovaries removed and signed the papers.
The Dr said I don't need my ovaries any more and better to get them both
removed at the same time but the more I read about the problems many
women have after this concerns me.
Any advice is appreciated. I don't know what I'm more scared of - the
biopsy results tho I feel fine since the kidney stones have been removed or the recovery & lack of hormones afterwards.
