Ovary Removed for Borderline Cancerous Ovarian Cysts
Q: Cyst in my left ovary, entire ovary removed because of borderline cancer, 4 years later, same situation. How can I enhance my chance without medical treatment or will I need treatment?
A: I‘m sorry to hear that you are in such a hugely tough situation. You don’t want to play around with potentials. Get to the best gynaecological oncologist that you can go to and then the best thing you can do is get a second opinion.
What I will definitely say to you, though, is that it’s very possible that you could still retrieve or save part of your ovary, from which you could have eggs retrieved and you could have an IVF cycle from the parts of your ovary that has been retrieved and can be stimulated often to create eggs, the mature eggs that are there.
I think that you need to certainly have a very in-depth, thorough conversation with your gynaecological-oncologist and really figure out what’s going to be the best thing for you because you want to be alive. That’s the number one thing. I think that foregoing treatment for the sake of your health and your life is definitely not you want to do.
I hope that answers. I hope that helps, and I’ll be praying for you.
