Prayer Request
Self

Posted on 01/12/2004 5:18:50 PM PST by giznort

I just found out today that I have a 5" mass on my right ovary and am very scared. The doctor said it COULD be ovarian cancer, but it's not certain and she didn't want to scare me (too late). I would very much appreciate your prayers as I will be headed for surgery very soon for removal of the mass (hopefully performed by an OB-oncologist). Thank you and God bless you, as I truly believe in the power of prayer.

I went through the same thing in 1997. My OB/GYN did a sonogram on me and said that I either had ovarian cancer on my left ovary or what they call a 'chocolate tumor', which looks the same as ovarian cancer on the sonogram. He said he wouldn't be able to tell for sure until my surgery. I had to wait a week for the surgery (had to get personal things in order first). I was so scared and left it in God's Hands. When I woke up from the surgery, they then told me that it was, in fact, a 'chocolate tumor'. I had to have a total hysterectomy due to that and also uterine fibroid tumors. You'll be in my prayers. God bless you. Please keep us updated.

Thanks for the ping, jigsaw.

I'm very sorry for your troubles, dear one.
Your fear is a natural human response.

Prayer warriors, we have some praying to do!

Dear Lord, we come to you again as we have so often asking your help.
As you know, heavenly Father, this lovely lady has a mass on her ovary.
We ask your guidance for the doctors and nurses who are caring for her, dear Lord, and we ask that the mass be benign.
Please heal our sister, dear Lord. We believe in your power as she does.
We ask in Jesus name, Amen.

that I either had ovarian cancer on my left ovary or what they call a 'chocolate tumor', which looks the same as ovarian cancer on the sonogram.

My mom had that, only her doctor called it a chocolate cyst. She did fine, no hysterectomy until long later after she had had 3 kids. I'm praying that giznort's doctor will have great skill and she comes through this great.

Thanks for the ping Cowboy ....

From the following website I found this info:

go here

Noncancerous (benign) ovarian masses include abscesses or infections, fibroids, cysts, polycystic ovaries, endometriosis-related masses, ectopic pregnancies, and others.

Of masses found in women who are still menstruating (have not been through menopause), about 20% are cancerous

So that means 80% of masses found are NOT cancerous....... I hope that eases your mind at least a little.

May God be with you to comfort and heal you at this difficult time.

((((((giznort))))))))

I lost both my ovaries to benign cysts. There is NO WAY a doctor can know what the mass is until he/she goes in and removes it and then does pathology on it.

Not to say you won't be nervous.. I SURE WAS!!!! I think you'd have to be a ZOMBIE to NOT BE. (It doesn't mean we don't believe either.. but believing can sure take some of the edge off!!) :o)

Just saying that in all likelihood, yours will be benign too.

((((((giznort))))))

I truly do know what you are going through.

In fact, I was barely out of surgery when I popped up on my stretcher asking if everything was ok.

I'm not normally a worrier.. but you can't help it when you face this kind of situation.

Knowing what I know today,.. I'd have given more of the worry over to prayer and let our heavenly Father do what He has said He can and will do for us.

It is therefore my PRAYER that you will find the strength to do just that. I lacked the faith and the strength back then.

God Bless you FRiend,..and PLEASE keep us posted.

Heavenly Father, we return to give You thanks for the family of believers gathered around giznort. We pray that You would touch her mightily with Your healing hand ... that surgery would go well and that the mass is benign. You have told us to be anxious for nothing, but that is so very hard to do, Creator God, so with a conscious decision, we give this situation to You. Remind us that when we are tempted to take this worry and fear up again, we are to again give it to You. And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, will keep our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

We praise You, O Lord, for standing with giznort in the midst of this trial. In the Name of Jesus, Amen ...

Prayers for you, giznort, and encouragement too. Several years ago, my obgyn discovered that one ovary was many times its normal size. Ultrasound test indicated bad news. Surgery was scheduled for three weeks later. I prayed so hard during that time that huge amounts of heat were generated, and when the doc when in to remove my ovary, he picked it up, turned it over and over, found it to be totally normal, and put it back in. It's still just fine.

Refuse to have any sickness or disease, and pray like crazy. We're here adding our prayers to yours!

God bless,

I've gone through what you are going through. I was told at the time that ovarian cysts are very common. Mine was benign, but of course painful and scary. May God grant you peace in your spirit, mercy in your diagnosis, and wisdom in your physicians. Amen.

Fear of the unknown is understandable, and especially in light of the possibility that you were told you face. May the God of grace and comfort, Who knows all things, and is all powerful, merciful, and good, surround you with His providential care and see you safely through this ordeal.

Keeping you in prayer. God bless.

Day 2. I'm in the wait stage: wait for the office of the surgeon (the OB-oncologist) to call ME to set up an appointment for and exam and the surgery. I waited all day for my regular OB-GYN to contact oncologist's office, and the only word I got was that she got through and that they would be calling me. Unfortunately, that didn't happen.

I want to thank you all for your prayers. You don't realize how much they mean to me, especially last night when I was basically shell shocked. Your prayers definitely uplifted me and if you could find the time and you think about me, I would appreciate your continued prayers. Thank you and God bless you all.

TexasCowboy, Simcha7, TEXOKIE, BillBears, MeeknMing; and all prayer warriors;

Could you please ping your wonderful ping lists for our friend giznort?

She is waiting for the call from her OBGyn to have a large cyst on her Ovary removed. They always warn you that they must remove those things to make sure they aren't cancer, which of course is a scary thing until the day it is removed. She has asked for prayers, and now must play the waiting game.

Ah yes.. the AWFUL waiting game!!

Gentle hugs and prayers for comfort. MAKE ALL RESPONSES TO giznort please :o)

Dear giznort;

Of course we'll pray for you until you get word of when the surgery will be, have the cyst removed and get word that ALL IS WELL!!!

God Bless you and comfort you!! Keep us posted FRiend, K?

SHALOM and BLESSINGS!

Dear Giznort and Family,

Oy Vey...the waiting is the Hardest part to get through.

You are Not in the "Waiting Room" Alone!

Your Family and those of us who Care about you here at FR are with You and the MOST Important ONE Who is with You Right Now IS...Our LORD!

HE knows Your Heart and Understands why You are uncomfortable, so HE has brought to You His Comfort in many small ways...just take a moment and think for a second?

Was someone extra nice to You?

Did You stop to marvel at a Flower, the Sky or the Sun set?

Did Your Family try to fix supper, wash the dishes or do some extra chores without a fuss?

All those Little Blessings of Love were from The LORD!

HE LOVES You and HE cares about You!

The LORD knows Your every need, HE also knows the Desires of Your Heart, and HE is there Right Now...Holding You Close just like a Shepherd holds a Little Lamb close to HIS Heart!

Lets Pray.

Avinu Malkeinu Our Father Our KING,

We lift up to Your Throne of Grace and Tender Mercies Your Daughter: Giznort.

Give to our dear Friend Your Strength and extra measures of Grace to get through this waiting period prior to her surgery.

We ask You O LORD our GOD Creator of The Universe and Giznort to Touch her body with Your Nail Sacrred hands and Heal her.

Take away ALL Fear, Pain and Confusion.

Give to Giznort Your Immeasurable Love and send to her Your Holy Spirit to bring Your Comfort and Rest.

We ask You O LORD to give to Giznort's Doctors, Nurses and Care givers Your Wisdom and Discernment, help them to make Good and Godly decisions concerning her care.

LORD, we know that YOU will be the GREAT Physician on duty in that surgical suite, we ask YOU to guide the surgeon's hands and give to him/her Your perfect peace.

Help our dear friend Giznort to TRUST YOU LORD, for You O LORD are the Giver and Sustainer of LIFE and the Giver of Every Good and Perfect Gift from above!

JOSHUA 1:9

"Have I not commanded you? Be Strong and Courageous. Do not be terrified; Do not be discouraged, for the LORD your GOD will be with you wherever you go."

We will wait in the "Waiting Room" PRAYING for Giznort's Victorious Praise Report, for YOU O LORD our GOD are Faithful and YOU have heard our Prayers!

For We Pray In THE NAME That Is ABOVE ALL Names.

Amen ~ and ~ Amen.

I will keep on praying for you, giznort.

roylene and I have corresponded via FReepmail, because I found her post about being a 17-year survivor of ovarian cancer fascinating, and wanted to know more. I think her story might encourage you and I think she is willing to share it here on the forum. Would you mind writing it again here, roylene?

It is very true that we walk by faith and not by sight.

When I turned 40 I was pregnant, I miscarried and developed an infection. I was in the hospital for 6 days trying (doctors and prayer) to get over it. Nothing they tried could get rid of the infection. I thought I was going to die. It was at that time the doctors said I needed a complete hysterectomy. When they did a routine pathology the doctors found ovarian cancer. (My youngest daughter told me that this child gave his life so I could live. I love the way children think and view the world.)
Anyway, the 2c refers to how the cancer (any cancer) is rated for severity. Starting with 1abc, 2abc, 3abc, 4, and then terminal. I really cannot remember the names of the drugs I had. But the treatment was for six months of chemotherapy. After two treatments and not tolerating them well I stopped. I knew the common reactions to the drugs, nothing that was supposed to happen happened. The doctors could not even believe my reactions and symptoms.
I am a Christian and believe in the power of prayer for healing. My youngest daughter was only 6 years old, my mom had died when I was 11 and my brother was 6 and does not remember her well at all. So I was determined not to have this disease take me.
I began praying and asking for guidance. The chemotherapy was killing me, and I knew that if I continued that the chemo was going to kill me before the cancer. On day while I was deep in prayer and study I heard and audible voice say "take no more treatments, there is no cancer".
I made an appointment with my doctor and told him I was stopping chemo. His response was "you will be dead in 6 months if you stop. You are a victim and don't forget it". After using the f word to him, I walked out of his office called my insurance provide and said give me another doctor, they did. This doctor said, he would do whatever I wanted to do, the choices were mine.
So on August 1, 2003 I hit 17 years. When I see the first doctor I always wave and say, "Remember me?"
So that is my story.
I thank God for my healing daily and my son who gave up his life for me to find the cancer.
Feel free to write anytime.
