So I woke up and was told they only took 1 ovary wit the cyst and the omentum, but left everything else because I have multiple tumors and a muconeous cancer covering much of my abdomen. There is a large tumor on my liver. They had the liver surgeon come in and look at it and he said it would be a huge ordeal to remove it so they choose that a better quality of life was the best decision. The plan to do chemo to try to shrink some of the tumors and go from there. They want me to recover from the surgery and pending the pathology report, then they will make a game plan. I will possibly have to change doctors because they are thinking the origin of the cancer is probably not gynological, but not totally certain at this point. They put in a cath port (?) on my chest/shoulder area and that totally upset me for some reason. I guess I am just sick of being poked and prodded! They think I can go home tomorrow, but only if I am able to pass gas on my own. My drain keeps filling quickly with the ascites fluid. So, if anyone knows what any of all this means, I'd love to hear your thoughts. I always feel like they are keeping info from me!
