Wednesday I am having my ovaries removed. I had my uterus removed 12 years ago. I am post-menapausal and a one year breast cancer survivor. The ovaries are being removed as a precaution. The operation is going to be a lapriscophy (SP?). However, if there is too much scar tissue from the hystorectomy, I will have to be opened up. The Dr. said it would be a "bikini cut". My research shows that another cut is vertical from the belly-button down. This gives the Dr a better view. I will be be discussing this with the Dr at our consultation tomorrow afternoon. I was wondering if anyone could tell me their experience with the vertical cut?
