Me, Post-Op Bilateral Prophylactic Mastectomy

New year same as the last

It is 11am and I am fully ready for this day to end!  Never good right?  I finally talked to the doctor and wish I never had.  I can not say that I am in the least bit surprised but the ultrasound was all bad news.  Not only was there no improvement the news has grown darker.  To start with my ovarian complex cyst on the left is still there and now has a buddy on the right.  The doctor still does not feel that this is a huge concern but is ordering a CA125 which seems to be blood work to help detect ovarian cancer.  Hopefully the blood work shows no issue and we will be left with repeating the ultrasound yet again in a few months.

So, it could end there but hell why would it?  Seems that this ultrasound also picked up two cysts just chilling out on the lining of my uterus. She also feels these are probably nothing to worry about but put it all together add in the recent prophylactic mastectomy and cancer markers then use the word “probably” and my nerves are shot. I guess a few drinks before the bus stop is not advisable.

Thankfully they have gotten me in next Thursday for a biopsy and I will get the blood work as soon as I receive the script.

I will do my best to continue positive thoughts.

  1. So sorry to hear this crummy news. Not to add to your pile of woes, but CA125 is a notoriously unreliable cancer marker. It may or may not tell you anything. I will keep my fingers crossed for you. Hugs.

    1. After I posted I did some reading on CA125 and see that it is less than reliable. I figure since I am going to the office next week for a biopsy I will talk to them at that point. Until then I will focus on those positive thoughts!

  2. These tests can fill us with joy or fear and there seems to be no rhyme or reason to what they find. I had a similar ultrasound result to yours and the little devils did resolve themselves in time. Never lose hope, things will get better for you.

  3. I have been following your story, and feeling like I really “get it,” although I was so hoping you would be all done and back to your real life. Stay strong as you are. Another hiccup along the road. You are a tough lady. Your family is lucky to have you!

    1. I know you more than “get it”! I am staying positive no other real option. Thanks for your positivity! One good thing is that DIsney trip at the end of February..nothing will affect that!
