Had pre op appt today:)

Well I hope I'm posting in the right spot. lol I met with Dr today & had testing done. Doc said he is going to do as much as he can laparoscopically vaginally with possible RSO. I don't know what RSO means. I asked him about taking tubes he said I don't have left tube, he removed it with left ovary. Shows how much I pay attn. all my pain occurs on the left side so I assumed it was my left tube knowing it had a lot of scar tissue which I had known from post op report after tubal ligation in 99. After surgery 2 yrs ago I only knew what he told my family. He is a great Dr and I trust him. He said he doesn't leave the cervix because it can mean more surgery & chance of still bleeding so I am finally comfortable about that. All of it actually. Except now I wonder what the throbbing dull pain on my left side from the moment my period stops is. It lasts a week or two but I'm confident & hopeful that all of it will be over after surgery & healing. He said he would try to leave my ovary. Maybe thats what the "possible RSO" is. Lol the nurse is one that said lavh w/ possible RSO. Good luck to everyone who's surgery is tomorrow

It's so much to process! RSO is right salpingo-oopherectomy. It means removal of the right ovary and tube. Hang in there !
