So I met with consultant yesterday, and contrary to his colleague who I met for my initial appointment on 1st Dec, he wanted to take ovaries out as well to reduce risk of recurrence.
I am 32 and have a 2 year old daughter. Before my diagnosis we had discussed trying for a second baby, though this was not a definite. Since my diagnosis I have accepted that we won’t be having another baby and count my blessings we have one already but can’t shake the feeling that my ovaries going seems so final. I also worry about the menopause and everything that goes along with that, though the consultant said they would start my on hrt straight away.
My priority has to be minimising the risk of recurrence and I know removing ovaries will help to do this, I suppose I’m just looking for others who were in a similar position to me to hear your experiences and that will hopefully help me feel more at peace with my ovaries going.
Thanks for reading
