Day surgery for ovarian cyst

Posted , 5 users are following.

I have just receive my letter confirmation my operation date and on that letter it advises I am a day case surgery. I have a large ovarian cyst about 30cm that requires open surgery rather than keyhole. I find this very worrying as I have had this opp before for a previous cyst which was half the size and I was in hospital for nearly a week and remember not being able to walk the first day and finding hard to walk the second. Has anyone else had day surgery for this opp?

    Hey, I would ring them. I had open surgery and was in for 3 days. I wouldn't imagine you would be out the same day.

    Samantha, I was diagnosed a couple of weeks ago with an ovarian cyst that is 30 x 16 x 26cm. I just had a double mastectomy Nov. 7th without reconstruction and trying to cope with yet another problem in this cyst mess. I found out about the cyst 4 days before my mastectomy!  I;m BRCA2+ on top of everything else. I'm just so nervous about this cyst surgery. Have you ever heard of anyone having such a large one removed laproscopically? It's a fluid filled one.

      Hi, I had a semi fluid/ solid cyst that had attached to my bowels and intestines. Size of a melon. My operation was meant to be laparoscopy but because of everything being attached they did open surgery bit it was all fine. Xx

    I'm going through the consultations/scans for a cyst of about the same size as you ladies, haven't had a firm measurement yet, but it goes from my breast bone to my pelvic bone and makes me look very pregnant. From what I gather it is a mucky fluid filled type. Have had CA125 test which was normal and the gyno has told me i'll have to have a full hystorectomy sad.Which seems quite drastic.  It's all very worrying, about to have an MRI and then back to the gyno in 2 weeks. I feel your worries ladies x
