3rd Surgery

I was diagnosed with Carcinoid in 2010 when my primary tumor kinked in my small intestine and had to be removed right away.  they took out about 2 feet of intestine and told me that it had gone into 5 out of 10 lymph nodes tested.  In late 2012, it was found in my liver, just one medium sized tumor and I had some Carcinoid Syndrome symptoms, such as flushing and daily diarrhea.  They took out the tumor in the liver, some more small intestine, the gallbladder and appendix.  this was a very rough recovery, but following this surgery i no longer had the flushing, still the diarrhea, but much less, and I generally felt great.  In January 2016 I had my third surgery to remove my ovaries, as the left one had something "solid" and growing noted from 2013 on a CT sacn.  I also had them fix a hernia at the same time due to all of my surgeries.  Needless to say, the "mass" on my left ovary was carcinoid and they also found one on my right ovary that didn't show in the CT scan.  Today I completed my octreoscan to see if it had moved anywhere else.  Just wondering if anyone has had it metastisize to their ovaries?  If so, what treatment followed that?
