Those of you who are done with preventative surgery take a step forward..not so fast Rosie!

Hey there, so I thought my journey with preventative surgery was over....until 2 weeks ago when I got a dreaded call from my gynocologist.

I tested positive for BRCA1 two years ago, and needless to life has been nothing but "important medical decisions" ever since.  Don't get me wrong, I feel blessed to have this knowledge, and be able to make the decisions that could possibly save my life...still, it doesn't make "making" these decisions any easier. It's a huge responsability. I don't think people realize what a huge responsability it is.

I opted to do a preventative mastectomy 2 years ago, with the added bonus of a long and painful recovery....and now the doc tells me they found a mass in my ovaries.   I knew that it was only a matter of time before I was faced with the decision to remove my ovaries and uterus...but are you ever really ready for that phone call?  I think not.


  1. Nobody is ever ready for bad news, girlfriend. The important thing is that you keep a positive attitude and you surround yourself with a healthy support system. All my love to you. I may not always show it, but my thoughts are with you. I will be "BLOWing positive energy your way.

  2. haha..nice! thanks girl, that means a lot :)
