I am super hungry right now, haven’t eaten since last night and won’t be able to until after surgery tomorrow. I’m having a bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy tomorrow afternoon, which means they are going to remove both ovaries and fallopian tubes. Super fun times! My oncologist thinks it’s important to remove as much estrogen as possible, so this is part of the plan. I had been in chemically-induced menopause, so I won’t have to get those shots anymore. And there shouldn’t be any shock to my system in terms of hormone levels or anything, because my ovaries have effectively been shut down since last October.
The plan is for the surgery to be done with just a few tiny incisions and it should only take about an hour. Then I’ll get to go home and sleep in my own bed. I’m not at all anxious about the surgery, but I am going to be glad when it’s over. Another thing over and done with will be good.
I check in at 12:15, so probably will be in surgery around 1:30 or so, I would guess. Send some good thoughts my way tomorrow afternoon!
