54 yrs. old
Symptoms: Vaginal bleeding/Ovarian pain 10/23/10.
Scheduled for complete hysterectomy in 2 weeks, including uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries, cervix & lymph nodes.
Diabetic, asthmatic,very obese, high cholesterol, normally low blood pressure starting to creep up. Previous diagonal gallbladder surgery. Previous C-section & 4 hernia repairs w/mesh done in same east/west incision location, 5 weeks apart.
Gyn/Oncologist will try to start with laproscopic surgery & remove uterus vaginally, if not able to will do abdominal north/south incision. Does not know if I will need chemo/radiation/both or none till after the surgey & it is staged.
I am more afraid I think of going under the knife one more time than I think I am about the staging or possibility of radiation/chemo if that makes sense.
I would like to know if anyone out there has a similar history to mine with similar symptoms & risk factors. I need to know I am not alone and this can be do-able.
Thank you & God Bless everyone & Happy Healthy 2011!!!
