Hi! I'm 39 and about to have laparoscopic surgery this Thursday to remove a 7cm (as of 3 weeks ago) cyst on my left ovary and a 2cm cyst on my right. I am also having a benign left breast fibroadenoma removed at the same time. These cysts are causing me discomfort and my CA-125 went from a 33 to a 55 in a couple of weeks. This scares me although I've heard that many things can cause this number to rise.
I would love any great tips for surgery and recovery! I am also interested to hear opinions on whether or not I should encourage the preservation of my lady parts? I am finished having children and part of me just doesn't want to have to go through this again in the future but at the same time I know keeping our hormones for as long as possible is advantageous. They have offered ablation while they are in there. Is this a good option? I do have heavy, long, and painful periods. Thanks ladies for your expertise!
