Quick update

The large mass is from one ovary and I have anther cyst off the other one. The large one is a benign tumor/cyst. They use both terms so I don't know quite what to call it. It is 10 cm big and it is pushing on all the other parts making life uncomfy. The MRI was not fun. That is all I will say about that, but if you ever need one, if you turn your head up, you can see out the other end and that helps with claustrophobia immensely. I am to have surgery to remove both on October 30.....probably hysterectomy. Will be in a couple of days. Sorry I have not been on but the stress of just not knowing was making me exhausted plus this thing inside me does not help with the tiredness. Been feeling some better since we now know what it is and what is being done about it. Now I just want it OUT!

Oh I'm glad they are benign my dear. I know this is a tough time for you and your family and I'm sorry its happening to such a kind soul as you. I'm sure your kids are so worried too. If you have a hysterectomy, just know that many women have that surgery every year successfully. Get some rest do some deep breathing excercises to help oxygenate your body and relieve tension. Thanks for the update. I know you will be feeling in tip top shape soon and able to chase your kids around in their activities again...God bless you dearly..
