U are in my prayers jeremiahtren..for healing,peace and emotional and mental clarity .Have U been able to find any more info about the surgical procedures from the hospital? Try to get as much information as possible, and consult your endo and have them contact the hosptital if they can, so that You are treated properly while you are under anesthesia.. Wiil you be completely "under"or mildly sedated? I am praying that you will go through this just fine., I undertstand how difficult it is to have an unexpected surgical procedure..Keep us posted and try not to worry.

God Bless,

Wow, that sounds scary :( I hope everything will be just fine!
A thought just hit me: Your insulin resistance... Could it possibly be caused by the ovarian cancer? I think you should have that checked.

You are in my thoughts! I have PCOS which causes ovarian cysts and leads to insulin resistance,etc.
