Operation date is coming ..nervous wreck

Posted , 5 users are following.

I have a scheduled laparoscopic surgery coming up on Monday to remove one ovary and both tubes(as I plan to have no more children ).i have had what seems to be a fibroma about 2cm..my dr gave me the option to recheck in 3 months but I felt at this point it's been there for 2 years what difference will that make ..it has only grown minutely over  this time ..so I'm opting to remove it ..all scans and bloodwork are pointing to be benign but I have myself convinced otherwise ..so scared of this surgery , recovery and biopsy of their growth ..I need to be talked off the ledge 😬

    First it's normal to be scared.  But I was told I had ovarian cancer, advanced, and to move up my daughter's wedding which was just 4 months away.  I was almost catatonic not knowing what to do.  However, I  picked an oncological/gynecological specialist surgeon.  After 3 weeks of prep and the certainty I wouldn't make it off the table it turned out fine.  Although a complete hysterectomy was done it was all due to huge endometrial ovarian cysts, not cancer.  Since you're having a laproscopic procedure your recovery will be quicker and hopefully easier.  Plus you are keeping one ovary which will hopefully delay meno onset.  So my best advice, focus on what you KNOW and tell your paranoid brain to leave you alone.  We all blow things out of proportion but try not to let it run you.  Hopefully in a few weeks you be well mended and getting back to your routine.
