Surgery in the spring
02 Apr, 2009
I had planned to wait until after the A-Basin season and after my birthday to go in for surgery. Unfortunately life happens and today I made the decision to get the surgery in mid-May, earlier than later.
I found out in early 2009 that I had a cyst on my ovary, typically cysts go away but after a month mine was still there. Now after a couple months it’s still there but now the ovary is having another issue with it. Every woman has two ovaries, so I’ve been warned that this surgery might include a Oophorectomy surgery which is removal of the ovary. The surgery would also look for scar tissue that has been causing me soreness. I’ve been riding for months and if I took a fall, I’d be sore on my lower stomach or deal with pain from it. Until I go in for surgery I won’t know how serious it is or if anything further needs to be done.
I’m a 25 year old female snowboarder and while I’ve been through knee surgery…sometimes you don’t get so lucky with things that happen to you. I’ve been reading up on my surgery and will try remain positive about everything.
I figured that even though this is a snowboard blog, it does impact my season and figured I should give a heads up on what is going on with me. I’ll save you guys the experience and keep pumping out fun snowboard stuff. I don’t think I’ll be hitting 100 days this year unless I get some late summer riding in so I’ll hope for that.
