I will be having a key hole surgery in 4 weeks in order to remove a complex cyst which has grown in size to 6.5 cm. I was told that I also have plenty of inflammation and my cancer markers were very high but it could be due to the endometriosis they found and the inflammation. At this stage it is a complex key hole surgery to hopefully remove the cyst and all the endometriosis they found everywhere but there is a chance I may lose the ovary. I would like to ask about preparation for after surgery and any advice would be greatly appreciated! For instance, should I be buying any special equipments to help me in the shower, around the house? How long will I require assistance before I can bend down and move properly? Does anyone advise for a longer stay in the hospital in order to manage? Are there any tablets I can take to get rid of the gas pain which everyone seems to mention as being very painful? I tend to be a very slow healer and worried about recovery and pain management. Thank you.
