Hi all hoping you can give me some advice. When I went to see surgeon for a mass in my womb I was adviced to have it removed although it was non cancerous. She told me they would try and take it out by keyhole but just incase they had to make a bigger cut would I sign a consent form to have my womb removed at the same time. When I came to after operation I was told everything had went to plan and I would get out that night. I was in a lot of pain but they got me up to go to toilet. I was told I shoulnt be in as much pain and I had to walk arround a lot. Later I asked nurse about my dressings and she went to fetch doctor who then told me I had a bigger cut and I wouldn't get home that night.To cut a long story short I kept asking what operation I had and kept getting told it was keyhole then a nurse printed something of the internet for me about a laproscopic oopharectomy (dont think thats how you spell it) and told me my womb was still there and they had to make a bigger cut to remove the mass. Can anyone tell me if they have had same thing and any reasons why they wouldnt remove womb. I am 66 years old and feel very stupid and still in a lot of pain. They have also said I don't need a follow up visit as I have dissolving stiches. I think I'm more worried because the nurse said on tuesday I shouldn't have pain and I was sent home on Thursday still not knowing what operation Iv'e had done.
