Need Surgery To Remove Fallopian Tube IM SCARED ABOUT THE OUTCOME

HI, I just came back from the doctor OBGYN and got a second opinion . for the 5 cm fallopian tube they found on the sonogram. She said I had 2 options one was to watch it and see what happens. and the second would be surgery to remove the fallopian tube. She suggested the second to have it removed because of the size. But she left it up to me. SHe said with the sonogram it looks to be benign but the true thing is a biopsy. SHe seems to think that when I had my hysterectomy that it could be scar tissue or damage from that. She also said I had no other symtom of fallopian tube cancer , I had no fluid in my abdomin and that the fallopian tube looked more benign then maligment. But I have this sinking feeling its not good Im crying writeing this . I guess its because I dont know the out come and I keep thinking when I wake up from surgery she is gona be there to tell me its cancer. Im sick over the whole thing. Im glad this site is here I need it at this time for my sanity. oh she is gona try laproscopic surgery but she said if it cant be done she will do regular surgery and I will have to stay in the hospital for 2 days. thanks so much for this site.

I'm so very sorry you are experiencing this. Of course you are scared, we all are when we are faced with the unknown. When I went for my pre-op my DR freaked me out with the way he was acting and talking. I think he honestly believed I had ovarian cancer and I felt helpless. I didn't feel he gave me much hope. When I got home I came here to be with my sisters. And you know what? A dear sister sent me a prayer and within minutes a peace settled over me. I realized that no matter the outcome, there were people here that would support me and comfort me. And that's my wish for you. Hang in there, don't you give up, your sisters are here cheering for you. By the way, I didn't have cancer, I had endo.

Hi Ynos05

I also felt as you did in January of this year. When my gyno called me at work to tell me there was nothing more he could do for me and that I needed to see an oncologist, I freaked out - I don't remember how I drove home from work. After the surgery, my husband was the one to tell me that it was ovarian cancer. We are all scared ... I still am. But you know what, we can survive, With supposrt from women on this site I slowly began healing from the surgery along with the emotional healing. I'm still in that long process, but today I think back to January 14th and the 5 months after and I realize I've come a long way. Tomorrow I go to my first ovarian cancer supprt group - you need to feel your emotions. You must grieve, be angry, cry, scream and shout if you have to. But in the end, know that you are never alone. Talk to people who will listen and give yourself time to accept and heal. We all worry that it may be cancer ... you know what, even if it will be OK. I will be praying for you. Please let us know what happens. Good Luck!

I am so sorry you are having these worries but you have had two doctors say that they don't think it's cancer.
Did you have a CA125? That might offer you a little more reassurrance.

I Know it's impossible, but try not to worry, it sounds like the chances are good that it isn't cancer. We all get Cancerhead, which is what causes that 'sinking feeling' and 99% of the time it's just that, a feeling, and nothing more. In the last year I have thought I had brain cancer, colon cancer, stomach cancer, bone cancer and now a pulled calf muscle is either muscle cancer or MS. How's that for 'sinking feelings'? Fortunately this stinkin' thinkin' passes.

Hugs and comfort,
