My mom just went into surgery this morning. She has three masses growing on her ovaries. She decided to visit the OB-GYN I used for my second child. My mom was in the room when he delivered my daughter. He is a great doctor but I'm still nervous.
Mom might have one or both ovaries removed, depending on the condition when he sees them. She also has a hernia so he will see what can be done about that. An oncologist will be there to analyze the masses and make sure they are not cancerous.
I did not get much sleep and I'm upset this morning. Has anyone has ovarian surgery and what is it like? I had two c-sections, but I'm sure that's different than laproscopic surgery. Just wondering what experiences you all might have had.
I will probably stay with mom for a day or two when she gets out. She is supposed to get out the same day but might be kept for a day or two. I will know by early afternoon. The doctor said either way she will need constant monitoring for at least 24 hours. If I am there, Dad can go pick up meds and anything else she needs.
By the way, thanks for all your prayers and positive thoughts, they make a BIG difference.
