First visit with the Gyn-Oncologist yesterday

Big sigh....

Well the three weeks between referral and visit to the surgeon's office has finally passed and I met my beloved surgeon for the first time yesterday afternoon.

My hope is that everyone gets to meet with such a wonderful caring doctor as the one I just met when entering this big world of freak out!

After six years of dealing with menorraghia and doctors trying to pass me a pill (which never worked) or a "nothing to worry about this will all be over once you hit menopause sort of diagnosis) it is good to finally be connected with medical professionals, seasoned ones at that, who will "get 'er done" and make these years of suffering finally STOP!

She reviewed with me the pathology report from the last D&C procedure/biopsy I had and explained to me the reason I was sent there and why the gynecologist I last saw did not opt to do the surgery himself. I feel like I'm in good hands. I have abnormal cellgrowth and these gyn-oncologists are the people I want to see. Little detectives that can seek out the rogue cells and see what they are up to and if they are more than precancer. They know exactly where to look, where they hide, and how they present.

I'm so glad that three weeks of "what if" and worry have passed and now I am armed with a plan and just a few more days of waiting until the scheduler calls me with my surgery date.

I am set to have a TAH as well as removal of tube/ovary that I do have left though there seems to be some question as to what was removed when I had cysts found on my one remaining ovary in May by another gyn (who NEVER read me my pathology report!!!!) grrrr.
I have learned NOW from good friends and reading the many caring posts here to ask a lot of questions and keep asking questions until I have my answers.

Thank you all for your posts that I read daily and gain knowledge about what to expect and especially courage as I read your stories and how you've all found your strength.

I am hopeful that the precancer diagnosis holds even after surgery, but I am strong and brave to know there are other possiblities and will face them as I get to them.

Hugs to all and I will keep you posted as I receive my date to head to the castle and become a Princess!

Keep on keepin on

Re: First visit with the Gyn-Oncologist yesterday

Good for you Groovette! It feels good to be ahead of the game "so to speak" for a change eh?

This website is where it all started for me, with getting a second opinion. I felt as though my 2 year stint with my OBGYN who was "given" to me through a program...was getting me nowhere.

I at least can say (for absolutely NO reason whatsoever) that I have taken every single birth control pill man has ever made.

Over the past two years.

Sometimes, three at once.

So...the girls here said, "By golly yes Maidyn. get that second opinion STAT!"

And here I am...6 days and counting.

I checked out the castle during preop today, and wow. It's just...wow. I feel in good hands too.

*princess dance* yay for us!

Maidyn
I'm thinking of you and your six days to go. Glad you've found a good surgeon now and you feel in good hands. It's quite frustrating to KNOW YOUR OWN body, consult with docs who just say "ah its nothing really to be worried about" .. 'Oh yeah.. then why am I bleeding so bad it looks like a crime scene?" I'm very glad for you (and for me) that finally we found the medical professionals we were meant to be with. Everything happens for a reason. If in the wrong hands, just imagine the damage that could have been done.
Knowledge is power and I'm glad you have visited the castle and know what to expect and feel good about the place where you will be "crowned."
Will be thinking good thoughts for you and your speedy recovery.
HUGS! Princess dancing right along with ya. You go girl!
