Surgery for ovarian cancer is a common procedure and can be used to remove one ovary or both, its fallopian tubes, and the uterus. 

Any operation has risks and concerns, and the experience for each patient is unique.

Share your experience with surgery for ovarian cancer... the operation, the results, follow-up, etc... and discuss with others.

@Lee__R Hi Lee, I'm scheduled to have my surgery soon and I'm very nervous, don't know what to expect. I've never had surgery before or spent any serious time in the hospital. I'd love to hear from others on this.

Hello everyone, have you seen this discussion?emoticon cute

Have you undergone surgery for ovarian cancer, a hysterectomy, omentectomy, ovariectomy or others? What was your experience like? How did you prepare for it? How was the recovery? Do you have any advice to share with @minnymom68‍ and others who may undergo it as well?

@Courtney_J Thanks for reviving this, my surgery got all messed up with the coronavirus, so I'm finally going in this Friday. I'm really starting to get scared.

@minnymom68 I had both a hysterectomy and an ovarectomy. Honestly for me it was really scary and painful. I still have a lot of pain. I wasn't really given any advice or preparation for it, I was just told to show up at the hospital at X time and not to eat beforehand. I wish I could have a happier story and some advice for you. How did you surgery go?
