Ok so here's what happened. He said he isn't convinced it's coc but of course cannot be 100% sure unless they take it out and biopsy it. He didn't seem to be very confident in the HE 4 results and said that test is still very new (CA 125 was within normal). He said the problem with me is that because I have already had numerous bowel resections due to the Crohn's that it would not be an easy surgery and there is a high risk of losing more bowel in the process of trying to get to the ovary and that could wreak more havoc on the Crohn's disease. He said laparoscopically is out of the question for me. Because of these risks he recommends waiting and repeating the ultrasound and CA125 2 months from the last one which was August 7 (I think, I gotta double check that...mental note lol) and see if anything has changed. He also said that if I feel strongly about doing the surgery he would do it and he would have a general surgeon present to handle the possibilities of any bowel issues.
Part of me says take it out!!!!!!! But after he told that this is not going to be a simple surgery it made me very scared about unleashing a bigger beast in my already troubled intestinal tract.
What do you think?
