I've just found out yesterday that I have an Ovarian Cyst, what should I do?

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi! I have just found out that I have ovarian cyst in my left side of abdomen.  The Doctor said that I need surgery to remove the complete left side ovary along it's left side tube. Then the doctor will send it to the lab to be tested,  if there's nothing else wrong with it.

I have only one son and he just craves for his siblings. I am too much worried about it. I don't know if I'll be able to get pregnant with just One Ovary?

Can anyone help me out?

    I had my left ovary and tube removed due to an ovarian cyst 23 years ago just 5 weeks after having my first baby.  Within 2 months of the operation I was pregnant with my daughter (was quite a shock lol ) and 9 years later at the age of 37 I became pregnant with my 2nd daughter (another shock redface  ) so one ovary can work just as good as two.  cheesygrin
