So I'm doing research trying to understand all of the potential UPO diagnoses and potential treatments involved. Want to make myself a very educated patient who has enough foreknowledge to ask important questions. You might be surprised that given my occupation I need to do research. Well, don't be surprised. On the up side, if at some point the UPO starts talking to me, I'll know just what medications to ask for.
So, there are a number of things that this sucker could be but amongst the most shocking and disgusting per my research is a dermoid cyst. Since we certainly don't want to get caught up in doom and gloom cancer talk and there is not much else interesting to say I decided to devote today to that which is not most dangerous but certainly most appalling. And unfabulous.
It seems to me rather ridiculous that if the surgeon walks out into the surgical waiting room and presents my family with my long lost ovary now masquerading as Cousin It, we shall all rejoice.
But rejoice we will.
Da da da dum. Snap. Snap.
UPDATE: Just talked to my doctor, tumor markers are normal! Will proceed with surgery on June 17.
