Laparoscopic Unilateral Oophorectomy

Posted , 4 users are following.

I had an emergency unilateral oophorectomy for a 7 cm cyst. I have only used pain medicine once before for my wisdom teeth but they did not prescribe me any pain medication. I am on 800 mg Motrin every six hours, 2 Tylenol every four, and I am still in crippling pain. They also gave me 3 doses of morphine and a Percocet at the hospital and I was still in pain. Did anyone else experience this? I need some hope please! I am taking summer classes while working full time and this is killing me..

    Hi! I had this same surgery back in October. They definitely should’ve prescribed you some sort of medication, like Percocet or something because even with that, I was still in a lot of pain but at least I was able to sleep. Contact your doctor and find out why weren’t you given any medication. I was off my feet for two weeks, I couldn’t even walk without throwing up for the first week. I’m praying for a fast and well recovery love. X

    Geez, if it was just lapaeoscopic then why so much pain? Did the cyst burst? Even so, it seems strange.

    Where exactly does it hurt? Your incision or your actual tube area?

    You should not be in so much pain with laparoscopic surgery.  The gas gives you the most pain.  That only lasts a few days. The incisions are very small.  Please contact your Gyno and find out what’s going on.   Be sure to get plenty of rest.  I recently had both tubes and ovaries out and am still recovering.  Best of luck to you.
