I went in for a hysterectomy. Prior to the proceedure I had an ultra sound that did not show my right ovary. I asked the gyn to take a look during surgery. He found it and the tumour that came along with it. Pathology report came back and the tumour had some unfavorable cells. I was referred to a gyn.onc. I do not have a baseline CA-125. the Gyn/onc wants to open me up and take biopsies/staging. What is this debulking I hear in this chat room? Has anyone else have a similar story as to mine? How is the recovery to this surgery? I am obese and concerened? Thanks for the listening.
