    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    I had been visiting doctors for a year, trying to figure out what was wrong. It took an arthritis specialist to speculate ovarian cancer.

    Abdominal hysterectomy

    Procedure or Surgery

    I developed an incisional infection a week after surgery. A seroma began to press on my spinal cord, causing intense pain in my left leg. The seroma became infected, leading to klebsiella and a subsequent shunt to drain the seroma.

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