Hello everyone, I havn,t been around for a while on here it,s been such a busy year. Last November I had large ovarian cyst removed over 20cms and over 3 litres fluid - horrible. Had a hysterectomy over 20 years ago and this was my remaining ovary. I have to admit my recovery was slow and probably because I havn,t rested enough in the beginning, I am now in surgical menopause, HRT is not for me . I had a post op check which was a trans vaginal plus ultrasound, that was fine with no masses or free fluid in the abdomen and I am so lucky that I have a brilliant team at the hospital with a fantastic Consultant who has been very caring and thorough, in fact he treated me years ago with my second baby who was a transverse lie, so I am extremley lucky to still be on his books so to speak. My cyst was borderline and the results were sent to the cancer centre to be studied further ( this was over a year ago ) they then wrote to me telling me that no further treatment was needed as it was good news and was all contained and removed. I had CT scan two months post op plus tumor marker blood tests which were all clear, my Consultant in fact rang me personally and told me not to worry and there was no cancer, there never was cancer and to stop worrying and enjoy my life and that they would keep an eye on things for a while before discharging me completley. Now I am in complete panic mode once again as today I have had another appointment for another scan ( transvaginal and ultrasound ) in two weeks time, this is 6 months after the last one, my imagination is running wild and I am panicking like mad, I have panic attacks and anxiety and am not feeling great at the moment as my father died recently and am on edge all the time. Can anyone reassure me that this is normal procedure after major surgery even after a year, or is my Consultant just being cautious, but if he is then why is he ? this is driving me mad with worry and it,s Christmas and I can,t concentrate on anything else now I have this hanging over me, don,t know what to do and keep crying all the time - what if this, what if that, please someone help xx
