hi I could use some advice and experience with recovery for an upcoming hysterectomy for large fibroids and cysts. In March while having hernia repair and gall bladder removal surgery they found a very large abdominal mass that turned out to be one of 6-7 fibroids (outside and inside my uterus) and a large ovarian cyst (5.4 x 5.9 x 6.1 cm ovarian cyst. The larger fibroid is 9.8 x 12.9 x 9.6 cm which is inseparable from the left ovary). I'm scheduled for laparoscopic plus vaginal hysterectomy June 6 although due to size it may turn out to be adominal surgery. I was told recovery was 2-4 weeks. But from the accounts read here I see 6-10 weeks. I was also wondering about the chance for the cyst to be malignant as my dr said he couldn't rule it out until it was tested. I'm not taking this news well. I'm 47 years old this will be my third major surgery this year (on top of a breast cancer scare). I know the likelihood of pregnancy at 47 is nil but the idea of having 100% no chance is putting me in a bad head space.
Thought? Suggestions? Thanks. NLS
