Hi, I've been participating in some threads here but this is the first one I have started. I got an ultrasound result last week showing that my right ovary is >10 cm, and have been scrambling around trying to get more testing and get surgery scheduled. Well, today I went to see a gynecologic oncologist and I am feeling at least cautiously optimistic for now. My CA-125 results came back in the normal range (23) so that is very encouraging, and the doctor said that it felt like a cyst to him - although of course can't tell until it is removed and tested. I am scheduled for a CAT scan Oct 7 and for surgery Oct 13. So at least I am calming down for now and happy that things are moving forward. The doctor is head of the women's cancer center at the hospital and I have far more confidence in him than in the gyno I originally was seeing. So, so far so good!

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
