    Procedure or Surgery

    I had a complete vaginal hysterectomy, and was only in the hospital overnight. Luckily, the tumor was contained in a polyp, the ovaries, tubes, and pelvic wash were all cancer-free, and I need no further treatment. The main impact that the surgery has had on my daily life is the fact that I can't drive for six weeks. Major cabin fever, but a small price to pay for being cancer-free!
