    I had cysts removed but not fibroid which was diagnosed at same time as cysts.  Perhaps it depends on size or if it's causing problems. Ask why they think it's necessary.

    Originally they wanted to remove my ovaries as well as cysts but when I questioned this surgeon backed down.

    I've had a big fibroid for years (actually it was 12cmx9cm at diagnostic, then 17x15 when pregnant, now its "just" 9x5).  Never caused me any problems or pain.  I have just been diagnosed with a 7cmx6cm cyst on my left ovary.  The cyst HAS to go but I was given the choice for the fibroid.  I clearly got the feeling my Gyn would prefer to leave it be.

    It came down to laparoscopic ovary removal (1 day stay, 2 weeks recovery) or remove the uteus and ovary by abdominal surgery (4-5 day stay, 8 weeks recovery).

    I chose the laparoscapic surgery.  Im due Feb 09 (I CANT WAIT! Im feeling so crappy!!!)
