Hi doc. my name is brandy i recently had surgery to remove a 21cm tumor from my abdomin... initially the dr only thought she would have to remove the tumor and one or both ovaries... half way through surgery the dr came out took my mother to a room and explained to her that it was cancer and that she would have to go back and remove my right ovary, appendix,omentum,lymphnods...... now we're waiting on pathology to come back , the dr wanted a second opinion and sent them to johns hopkins... I'm curious what stage i could be in and could it be more than just ovarian cancer?View Thread
