First blog! Where do I even begin?
My name is Becky and I'm 30 years old. I have been with my partner for 6 years now. She hasn't had the best of luck with her health, since we've been together shes had a ruptured ovarian cyst a stroke, non epileptic seizures, endometriosis and to top it all off she was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer in September 2020.
She's only 23!
At the beginning of lockdown she was suffering from pain in her lower stomach. It was another ovarian cyst luckily only 4cm in size. During the lockdown the cyst had grown and had turned into a cancerous mass consuming her right ovary. We got told in early September that surgery was the best option. A week later they took out her right ovary and tube and part of her womb.
21st October - my 30th Birthday we were told the mass was cancerous and she would need another surgery.
A week before Christmas she had another operation for a full hysterectomy including her left ovary.
Have you ever tried dealing with a grumpy 22 year old who was going through menopause? Jesus!
It's just a lot. Hopefully lockdown will ease soon!
