Family history of ovarian cancer and personal history of endometriosis
I asked my surgeon and he seemed to have a job remembering ?!? so I wondered if it was like a standard practice in the Uk and if it made any difference by having the hysterectomy first and the ovaries removed later on which is what happened to me?
I am 47 and have history of severe endometriosis and have had laparoscopic surgery to include hysterectomy and ovaries removed,and bowel and bladder resections. ( 3 operations all together all keyhole) I also have one family member who had ovarian cancer.
I have just had an MRI to rule out new endometriosis or scar tissue affecting small bowel as I had abdominal symptoms. The only thing they mentioned apart from old scar tissue was a small amount of fluid but my consultant is not worried about it and said its from all the surgery I have had. Should I be worried? thanks
