    Oh No

    Found out almost two weeks after surgery. Mayo Clinic had to verify the results from local lab. BORDERLINE MUCINOCARCINOMA. What?!! LOTS OF RESEARCH

    RSO - Right Salpingo Oopherectomy (ovary and fallopian tube due to LARGE cyst)

    Procedure or Surgery

    35 years old at the time - thought my "pudge" was from aging. My gynecologist knew something wasn't right. Ultrasound revealed a cyst (larger than softball) that had overtaken my right ovary causing my uterus to bulge as in pregnancy. Surgery needed to remove.

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