Had my surgery Wednesday for my ovarian cyst was told would tske about an hour ended up being a 2 and a half hour surgery which luckily they managed to keep my ovary turned out the cyst was 8cms across so bigger than expected. I was home the same day although the gas pains from the keyhole surgery at one point were unbearable I would advise anyone to have peppermint tea at the ready! Took the dressings off the 4 incisions I have today and although they look pretty nasty the pain isn't so bad all I can describe it as is like a muscle strain or like I've been majorly punched in the stomach. I was just curious although I have removed the dressings I'm slightly worried about catching my stitches etc but also aware I do need them out in the air to heal anyone have any tips what I can do? Also how long did people's gas pain last? I still get a pain in my shoulder tips every now and again any replies would be great
