Hi, I am just wondering who is in this community since I am new, and would like to have and give support. I had an incidental finding of an ovarian cyst (right side) a few months ago, and had an ultrasound, and now have surgery scheduled for April 20 for removal of the ovary and tube. Laparascopic. Then depending on the pathology we will go from there. My CA125 came in within normal range.View Thread
I am not sure whether mine is cancerous or not, will not know until after surgery. But I will say that severe back pain has been an issue for a while. I blamed it on my spinal issues, but am beginning to think it may be related to the ovarian mass.View Thread
Certainly you have the option of having just the ovary and the tube removed. My surgery is scheduled on April 20th for just that. They won't know if it's cancer until they remove it to be able to do the pathology.View Thread
