1 Week to Go

Hi All,
I found out about 2 weeks ago that I will be having a TAH BSO on 12/3 due to a huge cyst (grapefruit size) and tumor on my left ovary. My GYN sent me to an oncology gyn that is very optimistic that the tumor is benign. I had an infection and appendectomy (PID and TOA) 27 years ago after my son was born and the Doctor thinks I have major scar tissue so the surgery and repairs will be extensive. I am trying to stay positive but it's really difficult. My job is really stressing me out trying to get everything done. I work in the mental health field and my boss and coworkers have been wonderful, but I still feel this overwhelming pressure to finish everything. I discovered this site while doing research and it has really helped. Would love to hear from others.

Hi, I had a tah/bso for precancerous tumors 5 years ago. My pathology came back benign; I will pray for the same good results for you.

I tend to be a perfectionist and find that making lists in order of importance helps me a lot. I do what I can and try to forget the rest. Maybe you could do that for work? Try not to stress too much

You can find lots of great articles and helpful suggestions in the Pre-op Articles and Checkpoints.
