Adnexal Ovarian Cyst

Posted , 8 users are following.

Can someone please help. I have had this cyst for 8 years (i'm 27) Dr. always said it was a simple cyst but recently my obgyn sent me to get an ultrasound,(2months postpartum) and it was not a simple cyst. I have a pre op in a month, but I have been stressing over what he is requesting to do. Has anyone had any of these procedures? CYSTECTOMY OVARIAN LAPAROSCOPIC, LAPAROSCOPY SALPINGO OOPHERECTOMY, EXPLORATORY LAPAROTOMY, CYSTOSCOPY GYNECOLOGY.

    Yes I went in for a removal of what thought was a dermoid. .so laparoscopy but turned out to be a salpingo oophorectomy. They removed my left ovary and mass and tube ... I've since had my right tube and ovary out .. The dermoid was not a dermoid cyst but ovarian small cell carcinoma cancer ..good luck

    I had laparotomy to remove a large cyst and my right ovary (salpingo oophorectomy). They had suspected it to be malignant but it was borderline. Good luck it's a stressful period but the operation isn't so bad, it's the waiting that's worse xx

    Hello,

    I have had salpingo oophorectomy of right ovary, tubes and large cyst removed about 5 weeks ago and the cyst contained some carcinoma cells which I am waiting on further tests now.

    To be honest the operation isn't that bad really, but sue is right it's the waiting that is worse. Good luck and take care xx

    I had laparoscopic surgery for removal of both ovaries, both tubes, a 7cm cyst and also had a d&c. The surgery was a breeze for me. Felt great after one week. I had the surgery at 11:30 and was home on the couch in just a couple of hours. Waiting a month for the surgery was miserable. She did have to make the one incision a little larger due to the cyst. When I went in for my post op at six weeks she said she had never seen such quick healing. You could barely see any scars and now after seven months I could wear a bikini and you cannot see any scars. You will be fine try not to worry

    hi, ive had my surgery last july 2015 after consistently monitoring my cyst which grew from 7cm to 17cm from the time span of only 8 months. it was my most horrible experience. my Ca125 came back normal which was also a bone chilling moment. The surgeon did an open laparatomy removing my right ovary and tube, in which the scar was below my belly button and above my pubic bone. i recovered for about 3 weeks, 1st 3 days,wound was so painful. still manage to survive... the biopsy came back normal, i did not worry about the surgery itself but the results.

      It depends how you have it done. If through key hole surgery (laparoscopic surgery) you're usually in a a night or two, some are out same day though with around two weeks recovery. If you have to have open surgery (laparotomy) you usually in 4/5 nights and its around a 6 week recovery. Due to size of the cyst I had to have a laparotomy x
