I am so sorry this happened to you; your last sentence is soooo powerful. I am having my hysterectomy tomorrow and ovary removal. I have pre-cancerous atypical cells in my uterus. I will be 50 in a month. I was hesitant to have my ovaries removed, but weighed all of the risks. I am still not thrilled to lose my ovaries, but know its for the best. I was ignored by doctors for a year as well; I had backpain (lower right back, stabbing) and a lot of bloating. I too was told probably GI issues, GERD, even though I have zero symptoms of GERD.
Sending much love to you.
Well said, you truly have to be your own advocate and be persistent no matter what. My chemo and surgery was almost a year ago this month and I am a. Zejula daily to help with the recurrence. I pray every day for all of us that is on the journey of this terrible disease. 🙏🏻
