In brief: Yes

The tumors are what was described; borderline.
Almost all will survive with no adjuvant therapy at all.

In brief: Good prognosis

Borderline ovarian tumors are not common, but enough is known about them that we can tell patients their prognosis is good (very high survival).
In young women, often only the affected ovary is removed. Your pain might be from the surgery, adhesions, or phantom pain (as nerves grow back into the area). You might also have noticed more pain because of anxiety about a very unlikely recurrence.
