I had a complete hysterectomy and partial colectomy for treatment of borderline ovarian cancer 5 + years ago and was told by my gyn/onc there was maybe a 5% chance of recurrence. The tumor on my right ovary caused ureteral obstruction and hydronephrosis. I had to have a ureteral stent for a few months and required a balloon dilation and there was even discussion of a complete reconstruction of the ureter; luckily that wasn't necessary. Now the cancer has recurred in my right lower abdomen and not sure at this point how much ureteral involvement there is. There is discussion again of different reconstruction surgeries I may need for the ureter; that's the part that scares me. I already consulted with a urologist and have a stent placement scheduled tomorrow. The fact that this is a very slow growing and non agressive cancer may be positive but at the same time the invasiveness can also cause a lot of damage to other organs. Surgery not scheduled yet to remove the tumor.
