Waiting on blood work. On December the 10th I will be having surgery to remove 2 ovaries. I regrew an ovary. A large tumor will also be removed. On that day I will be in total menopause. No slow stoppage of my hormones just an abrupt stop. Pat asked me how long will I be "in menopause"? I told him forever and maybe I will not be a bitch forever. NOT looking forward to this.
