Ovarian growth PLEASE help
Hi, I'm posting on behalf of my girlfriend. If this is in the wrong place, please excuse it.
She had experienced some very acute abdominal pain about a month ago, along with abnormal menstrual bleeding. Her doctor took an ultrasound and found that she had a growth on one of her ovaries. A biopsy was taken, but the results were inconclusive, and larger sample needs to be taken. Her doctor gave her 3 options.
A complete uterine ablation,
Major surgery to remove the affected ovary, which we can't afford,
Some type of "chemo tablets" that, according to him, would neutralize the ovary, and most of the uterine tissue,
A complete radical hysterectomy,
Or leave it untreated.
Suffice to say, she's having an extremely hard time with the decision. She wants to bear a child one day and is having difficulties dealing with the fact that she may never be able to conceive. The only option that would give her even a slim chance of carrying a child is the ovary extraction. It's a non-issue to me as I do not care for her because of her child-carrying capabilities, but seeing her go through this is doing nothing short of killing me. If at all possible I'd like to prevent her from going through that, and living with it. She said it will make her feel like less of a woman.
So, I come to you, in hopes that someone will be able to offer some insight, possible alternative options, anything. If anyone has experience with a similar situation or any knowledge of any procedures, PLEASE post here or message me. I want to spare her this pain if at all possible.
Thank you for your time.
