I haven't posted in a while...to catch everyone up, I finished my 4th and last round of chemo about a month ago. I am still waiting for my hair to grow back - - - haven't seen any stubble yet. I do so miss my hair.
Here is my question... before I found my way to my current doctor, I saw the gynecologic oncologist who removed my right ovary and said it was a borderline tumor. When I went to him with the left ovary enlarged, he put me on birth control pills to see if it was a "functional cyst" that would shrink. Of course it did not and because of his lack of concern I did find my current doctor who removed the left ovary and diagnosed me with stage 1. Since I had a history of borderline tumor, how safe was it for me to take birth control pills? I have searched the web and can't find any info.
