In the last year or so, I noticed a dull ache either side of my pelvis in the and decided to get it chekced out. The pain seemed to move over to my left side and become more accute. After months I finally managed to get an ultrasound which highlighted an ovarian mass on my right ovary, which they THINK may be a dermoid cyst, around 7cm. I was reffered to a gyne who reccomended a laparoscopy.
My main concern about this is that it wil affect my fertility. I am 27 and currently have no children but absaloutley want to be able to in the future. The consultant I saw was very vague and couldnt really give me a direct answer. What I also realised afterwards from the Nurse who perfomed my pre-operaion assessment is that I have consented for my ovary to be removed.
They can only know for sure once they have fully inspected. So if I go through with the operation, there's a chnce I will awake without my ovary.
I know its not the end of the world, as I'll have my other one. But I'd prefer no damage of tissue and certainly no removal of my eggs.
I'd love some advice or just general information from anyone who has been through similar experince.
