I just got a copy of my lab report, a couple of months after my surgery, and it says that the surgeon accidentally cut my cancerous right ovary open for 2 inches.
Will that lower the odds of my survival? It seems like that would not only release cells metastatically, but regionally too, spreading cancer to any internal organs touched as the ovary was pulled down and out my vagina.
Would that mean that I'd need whole-abdomnial irradiation rather than external pelvic irradiation (I'm still in chemo now, but saw that stage 3A normally gets external pelvic, but I wonder if the staging is really 3B/C or 4 with the cancer cells released into my body)
