Risk reduction

Hi, I just wanted to share with anyone who might be worried about undergoing removal of ovaries and fallopian tubes. I had both ovaries and tubes removed on Tuesday and am now on Saturday, four days post op. I had the surgery done as a preventative measure due to a very high family risk of breast and ovarian cancer.

I am feeling great post the procedure - tired and sore - but great. I was lost menopause pre surgery which obviously helps, however please dont be scared if you need to have the surgery - it's all absolutely fine.

If anyone has any questions on the procedure or anything connected with this just ask me and I will be happy to share.
