So I had my first pelvic ultrasound to see how the Tamoxifen is treating my uterus after 5 months on the medication. They found that I have a 6 cm growth on my left ovary, probably a dermoid, and now I have to have to have my left ovary and tube removed. I also will need a D&C. If they find any cancer during the surgery they will do a hysterectomy. As if that is not enough my gyne called today to tell me that my pap smear came back abnormal. I have to have a biopsy of my cervix done before my surgery. I am only 38, but wondering if a total hysterectomy or having both ovaries removed would be a positive things if Tamoxifen is just going to continue to reak havoc on my body for the next 5 years. Anyone have similar experiences and/or advice you can share. Frustrated to deal with this now when I haven't even had my 1 year cancer anniversary.
