I am trying to find information on if an oorphorectomy would help prevent another recurrence as a Chek2 patient. I have also been struggling with joint pain due to letrazole and was hoping an oorphorectomy would allow me to go off the medication but so far it appears I would have to stay on it even if I did an oorphorectomy. Would there be a prevention benefit in the body not producting projesterone if I went throught with this? What side effects are people experiencing after having this done? I have a naturopath who is encouraging me to look into this but my oncologist is saying there is no benefit.

The only reccomendations for CHECK2 are breast and colorectal screening

LCIS, extensive sclerosing adenosis, TAH/BSO & partial omentectomy for mucinous borderline ovarian tumor.
