i am home from the castle

Hi ladies, first of all I want to thank each and everyone of you all that tryed their best to calm me soen when I was a basket case, don"t lett his fool you I am still one beleive me, I had my surgery on the june the third I got there at six they gave me platlets, and everything went fine that was on a Tuesday and I cam home on Thursday afternoon..and to this day I am doing ok so far...I was told after surgery that I had a severe case of endo to a horrfic extent, I was told there was no cancer that the thing on my ovary was my bowels that was growed to it and everthing inside of me was all twisted up but still there is this doubt in my mind that they are not telling me the truth I got the copy of the pathology report but in my mind they have fixed it so it looks like everything is ok said I had ado I can't spell it my uturus weighed 200grams but what keeps sticking in my mind is this there was no mention of fibroids and I was told that I had fibroids five years ago..and I thougfht you had pain with endo and to have it as severe as i was supposed to have it makes me wonder I had a few twinges of pain but nothing major....just heavy bleeding and prolonged periods maybe going for twenty days.. I was so tore up before surgery I have got it in my head there is nothing that can be done for me and they are just telling me this to put me at peace, they told my family the same things that they told me..so I don't know what to think now..I don't want you ladies out there to think I am nuts I am not beleive me I am just scared to death. Please forgive me for being such a basket case, and once again I want to thank each and everyone of you for all your kind words and support that you gave to me, anyone would be proud to call each and everyone of you all a sister.

NO CANCER sounds good to me...

Take advantage of the well needed rest time.

I am so glad that they found no cancer. But most of all. I do hope and pray that these fears will go away for you, it will take time, I know. Most of all right now is to concentrate on your healing.

Great News! No Cancer!!

Does your pathology report mention leiomas? That is the medical term for fibroid tumors. If it is not stated in the pathology report, it wasn't there. Pathology reports are complete and pathologists have no interest in deceiving anyone.

Relax, Rest, & Heal. Enjoy the rest of the summer. Enjoy your good news.

I understand so well your feelings, not quite able to believe that everything could be all right after the scare you have had. These days though, doctors simply don't lie to their patients, it is frankly too risky for them to do so!

Endometriosis is not necessarily painful, though of-course can be very painful for some. Your fibroids may not have been considered clinically significant in this context, or may have been called by a more scientific name. Please don't worry. If your pathology report says no cancer, then you definitely have no cancer. Congratulations on a great outcome!

I was spooked by the news that I would be having follow up appointments: I thought, "They must suspect cancer lurking somewhere to be planning that". Now that I have been able to speak at length to my gynaecological oncologist though, I understand why I have to have those follow ups and my mind has finally been put completely to rest. When you next see your gynaecologist, be frank and say what you have said to us. You can bet your bottom dollar that you will be completely reassured.

Enjoy a cancer-free summer!
