I'm new to this but wondered if anyone can enlighten me. I'm 19 and have open surgery on the 16th to take out what we suspect is a at least, 18cm dermoid ovarian cyst. My surgeon said he has operated on bigger but not with someone my age. We aren't sure whether I will have a bikini cut or cut upwards. We also aren't sure if they will remove one of my ovaries as there is a 98-99% chance it is attached to one. I was just wondering what laparotomy was like? How long are people off work and struggle with normal things? and really just what the whole experience is like? I know everyone is different, just looking for a brief idea of what I have to come.
