I'm just looking for someone who knows what I'm going through to ease my mind. About two weeks ago I had severe pain in my lower abdomen. After three straight days of agonizing pain I went to the doctor who said it could be a pulled muscle but just in case I should have an ultra sound done. The results were a 12 cm cyst on my right ovary. Also there is a smaller mass but they haven't figured out what that one is although most likely another cyst. I went to the gynecologist who said I would have to have surgery to remove it. He said we would sart off with a laparoscopy and if that didn't work since it's so large I would then have a laparotomy. I am absolutely terrified. I'm a 17 year old girl how did this happen? Everything was going so great I got a good hostess job at a fancy restaurant, a loving boyfriend of 13 months, and a big potential of becoming cheer captain for my senior year. I've been perfectly healthy my whole life and now the idea of getting cut open is terrifying to me. What I really want to know is what the recovery is gonna be like? Also are there any major risks during the surgery? If I have the big bikini line cut is it gonna look funny after it's healed?
