Ovarian cyst removal post op pain

Posted , 2 users are following.

11 weeks ago I have a ovarian cyst removed along with my right ovary. By about week 5 I was doing quite well then in week 7 end of I went downhill with a lot of discomfort in the operation area, because of my consultant being slow about getting things sorted I was in so much pain I went to emergency. A blood test before this revealed a change in my white blood cells, after a second visit to emergency they gave me antibiotics just to cover themselves. Went back into emergency who really did the blood test as my pain was getting worse and this time the blood test revealed my white blood cells were normal but I was really suffering. Was offered to option by my consultant for a laparoscopic investigation which I wanted soon as possible but now he wants a second opinion and meaning delaying the booking of the operation and making me suffer with the pain longer and an extra trip to hospital which I don't want . Also I am a private healthcare patient UK so have to use my insurance allowence to pay for this appointment I don't want. Any help on what could be causing this pain which can be awful and has gone on for three weeks or what I can do about this I

Unwanted appointment.

      Blood tests have shown signs of infection inflammation buy my last blood test have shown normal but the pain still remains. CT scan shows all clear injury wise

      Maybe a chance of a laposic operation but it getting delayed due to my consultant wanting a second opinion meaning putting up with the pain even longer. I have through his sectary managed to get an appointment with him even if he does not want me to have one. There is a tiny possiblity of endometriosis as I meet quite a bit of the criteria for it so I am as long as they let me keep the appointment mention it on Thursday

      I had an outpatient appointment today and I am having a laposic operation in two weeks today as there is no idea why I am in pain after the scans and blood tests. This fingers crossed will be the most effective way of finding out what's wrong. They wanted it the earliest they could get a slot
