    Relationship issues

    Oh No

    I just delivered my second baby two months before I got diagnosed. I left Guatemala to go to Houston to get my surgery and treatment, in case of need. My oldest son was 2 years 10 months old and jealous. It was very difficult to get the news with my tow babies and knowing that I was going to be apart of them for months. Finally I went to Houston 4 times in 4 months since I decided to fly back and forth to be with my kids and husband.

    Abdominal hysterectomy

    Procedure or Surgery

    I just had my second baby when I was diagnosed. My husband and I wa ted to have a big family, so, we wanted 4 kids. It took us by surprise and like a bath of cold water when they tolds us that I have to have and abdominal hysterectomy and also explore lympsh ovaries, liver and colon. The surgery was going to last approximately 5 hours since it was exploratory. So no more babies for us. That was shocking and very difficult for us.

    Went as Expected: Strongly Agree
    Minimal Recovery: Disagree
    Minimal Side Effects: Agree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Strongly Disagree
