ovary removal

Hi, I had BC 9 years ago, have just discovered I have BRAC1 alteration in that gene. I am going to have the ovaries removed next week (am v nervous)

My question is has anyone had multiple open surgery and been able to have keyhole for this operation?

I had 2 c-sections and 1 hysterctomy and feel doubtful if the team can do a keyhole method. Appreciate any views you may have.

Best wishes
Bunty
