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 say...my 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.
