Hi just to let you know that I had my salpingo oopherectomy done yesterday and I'm now home. The surgery was a success and it wasn't stuck to my bowel as it was before so they managed to get it all removed. They discovered it was what is commonly called a chocolate cyst the size of a lemon. It is caused by endometriosis and had fused itself to my pelvic wall, where the endo tissue is growing. Due to now being diagnosed with endometresosis I need to stay on the pill to minimise it.
my husband has commented that my stomach has all ready gone down in size, and even though I'm only a day post op, I'm not needing many painkillers, just paracetamol and occasion codeine, less that I was taking with the ovarian cyst
