I am scheduled to have a laparoscopic procedure next week to remove an 8cm dermoid cyst from my right ovary. My doctor explained that the cyst will likely rupture during the process and that debris could be left behind, resulting in chronic pain and inflammation. A cleaner procedure which would decrease that risk would involve removing the cyst along w the ovary (and tube). My doctor has left it up to me to decide which route to take. I am having a hard time deciding what would be best. Any advice from personal experience?
Thanks in advance!
