So, my Mom went through a 4 hour surgery yesterday. The gynocologic oncologist who did the surgery talked to us after. He thinks everything is benign! He thinks this because her fibroids have grown into several areas outside of the uterus including growths between loops of bowel (she had to have 2 different colon resections during surgery), and these growths attached all the way up through her omentum. He said he could tell these must of been growing for a very long time, and that is what is leading him to believe it's not malignant.
We are waiting for the pathology report to be certain. The doctor said that tissue samples were not frozen, they were sending them out for a more thorough analysis. I'm not sure of the difference between those 2 methods though.
Just wanted to update everyone. I hope the doc is right, and it's not cancer. My fingers are crossed!
