Operation booked

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hey, 

My op has been booked for the 10th April and I'm super super nervous. It is staying as open surgary. 

I saw my consultant last week and we spoke about it all and he answered my questions.!

I'll be on a PCA machine and given other meds to help with pain. 

I'm so so scared! Im finding my symptoms are getting worse as I'm getting really stressed! 

Has anyone had this op lately? They are taking the cyst, ovary and maybe the tube to

      Annmarie,

      I had the keyhole op and I was functioning to do daily activities the next day. My incisions were very, very small at less than a centimeter in length. The incision through the bellybutton was a bit bigger but not at all noticeable. It was the tape that was the messy part. I just wrapped a plastic bag around my waist and taped it a bit went I has a shower. The surgical tape stayed on until everything was healed. I was in a bit of pain but it was the worry I'd split open the stitches when I bent back to put my bra and tops on. I was pretty well healed after a week and a half. 

      Good luck to you both! The operation is nothing compared to the nuisance of the cyst!

      Thank you Lisa, you make me feel so much better. I'm terrified of the surgery, and yes mine will be keyhole as well. Can I ask how large was your cyst? Was it a dermoid as well?

      My cyst is 11cms fluid and soild filled. They are unsure what mine is due to scans not being clear. 

      I am having trouble sleeping too which doesn't help things at all! 

      Good luck!  How big is your cyst??

      Mine is between 2-3cm. They found it during a transvaginal ultrasound. I went to the Dr's since I was bleeding for 3 weeks straight. They found a uterine fibroid, and the cyst which they will be removing both. My symptoms have been really bad. Not sure if it's from the cyst, fibroid or both. My Dr sent my scans to two different reputable ONGYN radiologist specialist and they both came back and said it was a dermoid cyst. My Dr wanted to wait to remove it, I told her no I want it out asap. My mom had one the size of a grapefruit and it burst, I do not want that to happen to me I hear it's excruiating pain when they burst.

      Hey. 

      I am 23 years old - 24 this year. 

      I'm not sure how long I've had it- I found out the first weekend of January that I had it as I ended up in a&e in severe amount of pain and they done ultra sound and found it. Since then I've had cancer blood tests, ct scan and MRI scan 

      What are they doing about yours? How big? X

      They don't know. 

      My ct and MRI scan hasn't been clear enough. So my case has been taken to the cancer team a a different hosptail. And my consultant told me last week that unfortunately him or anyone can not tell me what it is as no one has any idea apart from it being a cyst. The wall of the cyst or soild part is thickened. I've had bloods for tumor markers which came back normal but my hosptail and cancer team have no idea what mine is.  

      When mine was found in a&e after attending in a lot of pain.( they think it twisted) I was admitted to a ward sonwas seen by specalist quickly. 

      I have pain on left and right side, pain in tummy and back, pain in right thigh, upset tummy, painful passing wee. What symptoms do you get? I've known about my since start of January. I thibk my case has been longer to get to the operation as they had to keep taking everything to cancer team and waiting for scans even though my scans were urgent. 

      Do you know what the are doin about yours?

      Geez, that's a lot pain you're in. I'm sure you'll feel great relief after the surgery since it will no longer be pressing on your organs and joints.
