    Oh No

    My newley wed husband and i were trying to get pregnant. I was diagnosed with PCOS and endametrisios about 6 years ago so I was having trouble getting pregnant. My doctor decided to do surgery and remove some of the endametrisios. During the surgery he found a tumor on my left ovarie, at the time he believed it was a cyst. About two days after surgery the doctor called me in to tell me I was diagnosed with cancer. Because he did not believe that it was a tumor he did not stage me.

    Procedure or Surgery

    it took me about two monthe to decide to do the surgery beccause i wanted more children but with my prior infertility i knew that it was unlikely to happen. so i did the surgery, it went well. the nurses at the hospital were great and i was up and walking that say. when i got home i hit menapause, it was horriable.
