"Ovarian Cancer diagnosis and treatment"

About: Crawley Hospital / Gynaecology East Surrey Hospital / General surgery

(as the patient),

An ovarian cyst was found incidentally on MRI for back pain ordered by Dr Kimber. I was informed immediately of the finding, fast tracked to gynae oncology, had my first operation BSO in Feb when the cancer was found and then had a full hysterectomy recently - both times under the care of Miss Jermy.

Update posted by katiep (the patient)

Thank you Mr Kilvington. I am doing great. Everyone was fantastic at ESH and Crawley on both times I needed operations recently for the same thing. Your staff deserve high praise for the work they do, everyone from Miss Jermy down to the housekeeping staff are wonderful and I feel very privileged to have been under the care of them all. People are too quick to criticise the NHS but it has never let me down in the many times I have encountered it
