Thought I'd update everyone here.
Had my surgery Thursday. Got home Friday evening.
I had my left ovary and simple fluid filled 5cm by 5cm cyst removed. Via keyhole. Three incisions, belly button,,lower left abdomen and a 3" incision at my bikini line. The surgeon got the cyst and ovary out in one piece
She said my cyst had adhered to my bowels and no wonder I had so much pain!
My first time in a hospital. I had fantastic care at Elgin hospital, the nurses were wonderful, I can't say enough about them.
I did have a rough time coming out of the anesthesia and a rough night the first night with sickness, but I woke up,the day after feeling relatively human! I showered on my own, peed on my own and ate and drank. So that's what got me home the very next day. Of course, there's pain and discomfort and I can't stand upright just yet. Taking lots of rest.
My anxiety was legitimate, but the situation itself wasn't as bad. Thought I'd update all here. And say thanks for your support of me leading up to my surgery.
