As I am now post op I would like to both share my experiences and and ask for advice please.
i had surgery last Monday which entailed having urethra stents placed as well as the removal of an 8cm dermoid cyst and both ovaries. Thankfully the surgery went extremely well initially but I had a few complications due to past health issues which resulted in a stint in Critical Care and a blood transfusion.
That obviously set my recovery back a few days but I was finally discharged from hospital yesterday and am now on the up and up.
Now don’t be put off by the set back, I am doing really well and am experiencing only slight discomfort. I am taking paracetamol and ibuprofen and don’t expect to need them for long. I had been particularly concerned about having a vertical cut but I am pleasantly surprised at how good it is.
I have a couple of questions please -
1. Any advice on preparation for clip/staple removal. I have counted 26 and am not looking forward to that! The consultant suggested I have them taken out over two days.
2. Has anyone else had to have stents put in and if so do you have any advice on that please? I have to go back as a day case in a week or so to have them removed and am not looking forward to that either!!!
thanks all, and I am happy to give further updates on my progress if anyone would like that.
