Research Time

April 6, 2014 by Julie Moon

So I met with the gyn…she had lots of great information for me.  First we talked about the oopherectomy itself and we actually talked about a study that had been done recently that suggested removing the fallopian tubes and not the ovaries was a good preventative step.  She copied the article and I am going to read it and see what my thoughts are on this.  We discusses hormone replacement and she explained bioidenticals and where the raised interested in compounded medicines came from.  When I do remove my ovaries we will have to test out different things to see what makes me feel most normal.  There will be some bumps along the way but she assured me the she felt confident we would figure it out.

She said to just let her know where to be and when I was ready and she’d take whatever out that I wanted. Ha.  We can always continue with surveillance.  I am monitoring my CA125 levels each year and I can also request to have ultrasound done to just look at things.  I will be 37 this year….decisions decisions.   I have no idea what is a “natural” menopause age for women in my family.
