Laparoscopic surgery. Failed to remove cysts!!

Posted , 6 users are following.

I had laprascopic surgery 4 weeks ago to remove a large cyst off left ovary and a smaller one off right ovary, which were diagnosed using vaginal scan and ct scan. When I woke up surgeon told me he couldn't find any cysts, they had disappeared! So he closed me back up. Pain continued, had very painful colonoscopy looking for cause , then Gp decided to do another scan as I was in so much pain! Guess what? Both cysts still there!!!! 4 weeks off work, 3 months pain and now back to square one!! How is this possible? Soo depressed!!! Don't trust the surgeon any more!!! Any ideas???

    Could you possibly request another consultant? It would take more time but may put your mind at rest?

    The very best of luck with it all x

    OMG!! Poor you, can you request a different surgeon or hospital. You should make a complaint to the hospital too. How can they miss a cyst? Having these things are stressful enough without all of this on top of it. Totally disgusting that they missed the cysts! Ask for a scan before you go to theatre next time so you know that they have seen them. Good Luck x
