Getting pelvic cyst removed,whilst having period?

Posted , 5 users are following.

Can anyone stop me worrying!!i am getting a pelvic cyst removed via keyhole surgery on Friday.But I am pretty certain I shall have my period.I know this might sound odd,but could someone put my mind at rest and say the surgery won't be effected?i'am sure it won't,but have waited months for this date!!

Thanks for any advice!

    Hi well ended up staying overnight as was wiped out by anaesthetic.Got home yesterday and foolishly underestimated how rotten I would feel!!Starting to feel a bit more human like,but hoping this gas feeling is gonna go soon.I am up and about,but yep its painful.

    It was 5cm cyst but some how attatched its self to bottom of Fallopian tube,which then in turn twisted and twisted.so she had to remove the dead section of the tube too,she thinks that was causing most of my pain.

    Hope your feeling better soon!!biggrin

    Oh sorry Leeanne, glad you are feeling better though! Did they not know that your fallopian tube was affected until surgery? I am really worried about losing my ovary or fallopian tubes as I have a very big cyst!

    Hope you have lots of help at home! smile

    Just 3 cuts and sent home with codeine and paracetamol.thats all I needed in hospital for pain too,it was the sickness that's done me in rather than pain from it.Also having 2 kiddies 7 & 5 I have to just try and get on with it,although husband trying.....ish!!

    No they didn't know it was Attatched to tube before hand.i had several scans and they said the cyst was in a really weird position.They knew wasnt Attatched to ovaries thou.she did say she hadn't seen the twisting thing before and has no idea how it happened.So not common by the sound of it,so I wouldn't stress!!smile

    Well it's been a long process.started with pains in August ref to hospital for pelvic scan.got it 2 months later!scanned and found cyst at 2cm.then re scanned 6 weeks later grown to 5 cm.ref back to gynecologist to discuss didn't get that appointment til dec.she decided to remove and the 1st available appointment was Friday gone!!

    Only ever had a pelvic scan no MRI or internal thingy.but on the day of operation she re scanned me cos I hadn't had any pain from the dec-march so that it had gone.but no still lerking!!

    Yeah its easy for people to say don't worry,but i think it's easier to deal with stuff when you know what and where it is.So at least on Tuesday ur gonna have a much clearer picture instead at the minute your blind and will be full of 'what ifs'.....which is no good!

    Let's know how you get on biggrin

    Oh wow, yours was ages! Shame that they were slow with it as you could have been all healed much quicker.

    I first went in on 20th Feb and apart from the two weeks for them to diagnose me correctly it was quite fast. (I was first told I was five months pregnant!!!) March 3rd I had my scan, then 13th appointment with the gynae and then 25th coming up I've got my MRI. So I suppose not actually that fast lol

    Yes it is pretty scary, especially as I have some solid parts and my cyst is very large (12cm by 9cm last time it was measured!) Guess thats why I am having the MRI. Have they given you some good meds?!
