Happy dance!

Had my post-op visit with the surgeon today.

1. Staples are OUT, and my poor belly feels so much better already.

2. He cleared me for external play with the husband (intercourse is a ways out, but something is better than nothing), AND

3. My tumor WAS cancerous. But, he said there were no signs it had spread, and it was a non-aggressive form of cancer (granulosa cell tumor), so NO CHEMO! I am done! I just need to finish recovering from surgery and get back to a normal life again!

Happy happy happy!

That is good news that you don't have to have further treatment. I remember you writing before surgery wondering if this was the right procedure for the cyst. It looks like it was.

Will you be following up with your gyn/onc? I know that the gyn/oncs like to follow us ovarian cancer survivors really close.

As I am sure you are aware of, to be diagnosed with an early stage ovarian cancer is very special as most are diagnosed Stage 3 or 4. All the more reason to celebrate and to be thankful.

Turns out the tumor type is very rare - granulosa cell tumor - and, like I said, non-aggressive. The surgeon will be keeping an eye on me, no doubt, probably every few months.

Plus, there was a clinical study I agreed to when I was first diagnosed. They're trying to find better markers in blood tests to determine malignancy. If I'd had a benign mass, the first blood test would have been the end of my participation in the study. If not, they want to follow up post-op with testing, I guess to see what changes there are once the tumor is removed. I'm not sure though, due to the rarity and non-aggressive nature of GCT's, if I'll be part of the followup after all. I'm sure they'll let me know one way or the other. Either way, I hope that by agreeing to this study, I helped in my own little way with better diagnoses for women in the future. (Man, am I a sap!)
