Well, my oncologist and I decided it was best I have my ovaries removed and I'm booked in to have it done this Wednesday. My surgeon's office is next to my oncologists because they are husband and wife! Very convenient for me. He told me a lot of girls have their ovaries removed to help prevent new cancers. He has even had a patient who had breast cancer cells in her ovaries!! I didn't know that was even possible. Anyway, I've asked him to take my fallopian tubes as well, and he said I should be out of hospital the following day. Fingers crossed there's no complications.
Well I'm feeling pretty good again and have my old energy levels back, so I was very surprised when my oncologist told me on Thursday that I am now in menopause! I thought I would be feeling worse than this so I was pretty happy. Apart from no periods and very mild hot flushes, everything else is good. On the upside, my anaemia from heavy periods has gone. On the downside, I have a drawer full of super-sized tampons and condoms which will now go unused. My husband said I should sell them on ebay!! Haha.
