Hello everyone! It’s my first time posting here.
I’m 21 years old and was recently diagnosed with right ovarian cyst (20.5x30x12 cm) (I know, massive!). My doctor said I have to do a laparotomy (a very long vertical incision) as soon as possible as I had one elevated tumor marker (although it’s unlikely to be malignant, and I sure hope so🙏??) and because of the size of the cyst as it is taking all over my abdomen. The problem is that I’m a student nurse in my final year, and only less than a month and half is left till we finish this semester. I’m worried about the recovery period; he told me it would take a month (which would make me unable to finish the semester and therefore repeat the whole semester next year), so did anyone have the same experience? If so, can you tell me about it, and whether is it possible for me to go back to college 2-3 weeks post-op so I can finish the semester? And would it be possible for me to study for my exams like 10 days post-op?
I’d really appreciate your replies 🙏??
