s Maria

I see you live in Hamilton NJ. Is that north or south? I live in Pitman NJ. What hospital and doc are you using?
I am sorry you are having such a nerve wracking time. Remember, your ca 125 is really low normal. Which probably bodes really well for you that this is all benign stuff going on.
Have you been to the pre op and post op forums so that you know what to expect for surgery and recovery?
Try and relax these next two days and enjoy this beautiful spring.
You might also ask your doc for an antianxiety pill like ativan.
I am thinking of you.
My ca 125 was in the 900's. And my masses were 12 cms.

I see you are having a gyne-oncologist as your surgeon. They are the most qualified for this kind of surgery. I also had a gyne-onc. Although he was less personable than my regular gyne, I'm glad I had him do the surgery. I had a 6 cm complex cyst with demarcation. My CA 125 was 112.

No one can tell you if your cyst is cancerous without a biopsy. Your only job now is to wait. This is harder than the surgery. Keep in mind you have the best physician for the job and a low ca 125 count.

Karenann is right. Read all you can on the pre and post op board to prepare yourself for the surgey. Then be good to yourself. Take relaxing baths and read, do hobbies, what ever calms you and keeps your mind off Wed.

We are pulling for you.

Pre Op and Post Op Forums and Assurance

You have a gyn/onc which is the top notch and best to have if there's a suspicion of cancer--but with that terrific CA125 it's likely benign--that's very low. I agree--read pre op and post op to get some ideas and realize you're not along in being nervous and worried. My CA125 pre surgery was 161. Uner 35 is considered normal.

One more thing.

If you do a search, you can read my posts.

Sorry this is a short response.

Maria, good luck. I will be thinking about you.

Mine was 161 before surgery and 17 after surgery.

The waiting is hard. But try not to freak yourself out too much. Given the size of my tumors and the presence of ascites, we all pretty much knew that it was cancer before they went in. But they don't know that it's cancer for you, which is a good sign.

Try to be calm and to pray, and to prepare yourself for any situation that might arise. It really sounds like you have a benign condition going on. But there's just no way to know until they do the surgery. If it is not benign, it is very likely that what you have was caught much earlier than most of our stuff has been caught.

We will be thinking of you on Wednesday! s!
