In answer to your question about ovary removal and staging. My doctor left it completely up to me about ovary removal. I made my decision because I WAS ALREADY diagnosed with Cervical cancer...and a woman I met in my oncologist\^s office chose not to have her ovaries removed and she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer less that 2 years later. I have spoken to several women who DID get ovarian cancer years after cervial cancer--something I do not want to deal with. WHY CHANCE IT? WHY would you NOT get your ovaries removed? My chances of the FDA finding problems with HRT are much better than ME dealing with Ovarian cancer.
