      No Debb just a bit stiff as if you have done excersize. Your body will let you know how and when you need to take it easy..I was in my sixties and very fit but I took tjme before i did anything too energetic, no lifting or pulling. I am a keen gardener so was a bit frustrated.I got there in the end. Any help Take care jackie

      Have you been told what type of surgery will be done?.Whatever method, it has been performed a million times, so do not feel scared. Speak to your GP about your concerns and do not worry. As for the fibromyalgia tell him/her that is also a concern for you..Please keep talking I know it helps. Take care Jackie.

      Hi Jackie

      Can i ask, did they tell you they might do a hysterectomy?  Did you have to choose what you wanted doing?  I couldn't understand the consultant I saw very well, but wondered if, because of my age (60) they would need to remove everything.  It's good to hear that you were fairly pain free after the op.  Did they also remove fallopin tubes? They have told me they are 98% sure it will be keyhole. 

      Sorry to jump in here Debb.

      Best wishes

      Hi kathy,

      I suppose I may have been very lucky as I have never had any problems with my lower region. I did however suffer a UTI infection and was given antibiotics which seemed to clear the problem,very soon I had another attack. My GP sent me for an ultrasound here at my local hospital in Wales. They discovered a shadow on one of my ovaries, which scared me senseless. Very soon after this I was sent to Hereford to have another scan,where I was told there was every likelehood it would be benign. This confirmed my fears were lessened,and was asked should they take only the infected ovary or both. As I was no longer of child bearing age I selected to have both removed to prevent a reacurrence.

      Within days I was given a date to go and have the surgery at Hereford early am discharged early pm. By keyhole surgery The findings were benign and a mass equivalent to a five month foetus was removed. No other procedures were nesessary.  I had no bloating or pain to give any indication something was not right apart from the two UTIs. So all in all I do consider myself very fortunate. My health is back to form and I actually feel a healthier person, much more stamina. So how long this had been lurking I have no idea. Just very grateful that I was seen to very quickly. Hope this helps, do not be afraid to ask the silliest questions it is your body and you need to know exactly what will and can be done for you. Thinking of you keep in touch and let me know how things proceed with you.

      Thanks Jackie.  I asked to see him again because I couldn't understand what he was saying to me properly (he has a strong Italian accent). When we left his office my husband and I both thought he said different things.  I though he said that if it wasn't cancer he would remove ovaries and fallopin tubes, but my husband thought he said hysterectomy (because of my age?).  I'm hoping he will have the results of the CT scan and that it will be good news.  You are right - I did feel overwhelmed.  Writing things down is a good idea, and I think I'll write his responses down also.

      Thanks for thinking of me Wednesday.  I'll let you know how I get on.

      Best wishes

      Glad I may have helped a little, if you are with your husband that is even better. Do not be rushed or feel you are not taking in what is said,and you are taking up his time....this is your time so get to know everything you feel vital for your own peace of mind. Now do something nice for yourself and enjoy X

      Hello Kathy,

      How are you today, do hope you have found some time for yourself,and are less concerned. I know it is a silly thing to say as it is so difficult to switch off when something is pestering us. You will know on Wednesday and you sound positive about the questions and answers you expect. I always think that when I go to the dentist it is for my own good, (which I loathe.) I know I am in safe hands and let them get on with it. It is far better to know there is a problem that can be solved rather than not knowing at all. Feeling better?  What part of the country are you in if that is not a too personal question to ask?

      Hi Jackie.  Thanks for thinking of me.  I had good news this afternoon.  My doctor rang to say that the CT scan showed that the cyst was 'highly unlikely' to be cancerous.  Now I just need to get through Wednesday's appointment and hope I can understand the consultant.  I'm wondering if he did say that he would do a hysterectomy because of my age.  I see other people on this site have been told this.  It just bothers me that this is a bigger operation and may take a lot longer to recover from.  I don't understand why they feel the need to do a hysterectomy rather than just ovaries and fallopin tubes just because of age.  I am in Oxfordshire.

      xx Kathy

    Hi Debb.  I also am 60 and waiting to hear about the date for the removal of a large cyst on my right ovary.  Do you have a date for your op yet?

    Best wishes
