i never thought id have to come to the prayers and support section twice in only a few months. i'm nervous for my girlfriend and i figured any help we can get is help.
a couple weeks ago she had severe pain in her left side, i took her to the er and the did xrays, ct scan, blood work etc... the results were she had growths on her ovaries. one wasnt too bad, the one on her left side was something like 8 cm x 5 cm. they had to do more tests to determine what it was. they said it could be a cyst, it could be a tumor, or it could be a cancerous tumor. so they said she would have to get an ultrasound to get a better image.
the results of the ultrasound were;nt great either. they said they still cant tell if it s a cyst, or some sort of tumor. they did say it looks like it's twisting into the ovary, so it may be a twisting tumor. they said surgery is the only option, so she is going in on tuesday. they wont really know how to remove the growth until they are in there and see what it is. they said they will have cancer experts on hand just in case (makes me nervous). then they said depending how it is attached, they may have to remove the whole ovary. i dont like the situation, my girlfriend is pretty freaked out with the whole thing, she's worried about if they have to remove the whole thing if she'll be able to have kids one day and how everything is gonna turn out. i think the part that she hates the most is that she wont know what they had to do to remove the cyst or tumor until she wakes up.
so i figured i'd post something up here, now that we're getting closer to the surgery date i'm getting just as nervous as she is...
