Good news on prophylactic removal of ovaries and tubes

Good news on prophylactic removal of ovaries and tubes

Posted by ashcon on Mar 4, 2020 3:56 pm

On Jan 21,2020 I had prophylactic removal of my ovaries and fallopian tubes, based on my history with breast cancer (2017) and some pesky and persistent cysts that were unusual, given that I am 10 years postmenopausal.

I saw my surgeon today and got the pathology results: there was some mild ovarian hilar hyperpalsia (mild case of rapid cell growth), but not enough to be called "pre-cancerous".

So I am doing a happy dance in my household today!

If I didn't have two left feet I'd be dancing too. As it is I have this huge grin splitting my face.

Such good news.
