Hi! It's nice to meet you and I look forward to getting to know you all. I'm 51 and as of last week I wasn't in menopause according to my lab work. Christmas day changed all that. I had to go to the emergency room on Christmas eve. I had gone to the ER the day before that and told them the pain was exactly like the pain I had ten years earlier when I had a twisted ovary that ruptured. They assured me I was just constipated. I went home and laid curled up in bed for 24 hours and then when I couldn't stand it I went back to the ER Christmas eve and insisted I had a twisted ovary. I only had one ovary left. This time they did a CT scan of my belly and found a mass the size of a grapefruit. The ER doctor told me I needed to see a surgeon and I needed to see him that night. They weren't equipped to handle this type of an emergency so they transferred me by ambulance to another hospital. They thought I needed to see an oncologist. I was scared to death I had cancer. The doctor I saw at the hospital was a gynecological oncologist. He must have picked up on my fear because I remember him giving me a long list of his credentials. The last thing I remember him saying was he trains physicians for Walter Reed medical center. Anyway I spent my Christmas day on an operating table. Everything went well and I didn't have cancer. The mass they removed was my ovary. It had twisted and ruptured. Now I have no ovaries left. Which means now that I am in medically induced menopause instead of gradually going into menopause. I was hoping I'd be like my mother. She sailed through menopause without one single symptom. I am a week out from my surgery now and I'm beginning to feel moody. I'm super sore from the surgery. I can't do anything around the house. I feel overwhelmed. The house is in major need of a cleaning. My husband will do it but not without sighing and rolling his eyes. He just doesn't understand. I guess I shouldn't expect him too either. He's otherwise a loving and kind guy. I remember when I had my first twisted ovary ten years ago. After the surgery was scared to death to move. I was afraid if I moved my other ovary would twist and I didn't want to go thru that again. The surgeon who removed that ovary told me that a twisted ovary is rare. He said I should be fine the rest of my life. It must not be that rare for me to get it twice in a lifetime.
