    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    Doctors didn't think it was cancer, turned out it was 2 huge tumors of cancer where my ovaries were.

    Debulking surgery

    Procedure or Surgery

    Things were not as expected. The Dr. didn't think it would be cancer and it was. There were bleeding issues in surgery and I came out of it with low blood pressure. They gave me blood to help. I was very weak and sick for a long time.

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

    It was a hard fight but, I won this round. I have my hair back and am feeling good. I am so thankful to have such wonderful support of my Doctors and family.
