I have looked at a lot of the sites that you posted. Not for hyst Cancer. I just found out yesterday that I did have thyroid Cancer. I am an active participant in Hystersisters due to my hyst 9/17 but I now understand the cancer fears!

A great new resource book!!!!!

There is a wonderful new book out:

Ovarian Cancer Your Guide to Taking Control
by Kristine Conner and Lauren Langford

I would highly recoomend it to any woman who is newly diagnosed with or suspected of having ovarian cancer.
It is the most information I have ever found in one resource book.
If your book store does not have it, can deliver it very quickly.

A Suggested Site

The site was developed by a doctor, Dr. Vicky Clement-Jones, diagnosed with ovarian cancer. She was a remarkable, brave woman.

More words

These words weren't in my pathology report but they were in the surgical one and I thought they would be of interest and informative also.

Lysis Process of disintegration
Serosa Delicate membranes
Loculated Divided into compartments
Hemostasis Arrest in Bleeding
Cul-de-sac ?????

I can't find a definition of cul-de-sac, it was used in my report like this:
Skeletonization took place, but was limited by the obliteration of the cul-de-sac. Essentially this was the rectum adhered to the posterior mid-aspect of the uterus.

I also am not sure was skeletonized means. It was used numerous times in my report, referring to ligaments and the ureter be skeletonized. I am thinking it means released from, or being pulled away from other tissues.
Thanks, Justine
