Well, I've been dealing with my bartholin cyst since November. It''s been lanced 4 times, but keeps coming back. I've tried just about everything from antibiotics,to homeopathic remedies, the miracle method, serrapeptase, sitz baths, warm compresses, silicea... and nothing worked for me, so my OB/Gyn and I have decided that it is best to get the entire gland removed instead. He has done the procedure many times in his 30 years of practicing, so I am confident in his ability.
The problem is me...I have a bad habit of reading horror stories and advice and all the junk that is out there on the internet and I am so afraid that I will either A. not wake up after the anethesia (it's my first procedure), B. The entire gland will not be removed and my cyst will plague me for the rest of my life, C. I will have post-op problems such as infection, chronic pain etc.
I really need to stop reading stories!! But i wouldn't mind some positive ones to ease my mind. My surgery is scheduled for next week and I think I will go crazy before then!!
Sorry for the vent! Needed a place to download all my thoughts.
