Hi all! I am a newly diagnosed ovarian cancer patient stage 1c. I had a suspicious cyst that was found on a ct scan. My gyn was 90% sure it was an endometrioma but said the only way to be sure is to do surgery. On May 24th I underwent a laparoscopic hysterectomy robotic assisted. I was told everything was fine-no cancer. Two days later the doctor called me and said the pathologist called and said there was indeed cancer in the ovary. The gyn failed to send the specimen during surgery to frozen section. He just assumed it was not cancer. Therefore no staging procedure was done. Based on the limited information that the pathologist had I was staged as a 1c. After talking to a specialist in gyn/oncology I am having a PET scan friday to look for spread and if everything is ok I will have a mediport implanted and start chemo. If it is not ok, a surgery for staging will be completed and then chemo. Tomorrow I get a second opinion. I am ready to get moving on the chemo. It seems strange to look forward to something that sounds so awful!
