    Hi Helen,

    I've had this surgery twice. Both times I was back at work within a week (desk based job) and feeling recovered after 2 weeks.

    It's quite an easy one to recover from. Just take it more gently the first few days.

    Hi Helen

    I am currently in Hospital as I've had this procedure done this morning. I had a 7cm dermoid cyst on my right ovary. I was first on the morning list so my surgery was carried out from 8.30am.

    It took around 2.5 hours to complete, they explained there was some complications and I later read through my medical notes that the cyst had ruptured upon removal, so they have put me on a weeks worth of antibiotics.

    Pain wise I feel terrible. They done the surgery keyhole but it's so so painful. I'm making Oramorph every 2-3 hourly and I pretty much had to pled to stay overnight as couldn't face going home. I don't know how long it is going to take to heal, but the good thing is that I've had no shoulder pain from the gas they use during surgery, and my ovary was saved. How did you get on with your op and healing time?

    Kind regards
