    My lapraotomy is next Friday. I am anxious but at the same time want them to take it out, have a look, and let me know that it's not cancer (they think it's a dermoid at the moment). Where are you having your surgery?

    I just had my operation a week ago and I was very scared. I was going to back out at last minute but everyone convinced me to go ahead with it and I'm glad I did. First 3 days were painful but as each day goes by I feel better. My right ovary carried a 15.5 lb. cyst and they went ahead and took the other because it was the size of a softball. My stomach has gone down a lot!

      Hi Kim.                                                           I  really feel scared now, I know I'm being silly but I'm finding it hard  not to be  terrified. 3 days now and  , I'm trying to keep busy with work and when home the same. Goodness knows what I'm going to be like on Monday morning. As I have asked for something to relax me before I go down to theatre will it help me feel calm . How are you doing now , how long are you off work . Karenxx
