I have had a previous surgery twice to remove ovarian cysts and surprise surpise I have more growing. They always form on my right ovary and are always in groups of 3. I have FINALLY gotten a gynaecology referral (after waiting 9 months) and due to see them at the end of the month. I have discussed it with my GP and he seems to think that I should push for surgery, and possibly removal of the offending ovary. The reasons for this is they cysts are effecting me and given my history I'll most likely grow more. Now Nobody willingly wants to go under the knife but I think if they did surgery on me sometime this year and took the ovary out then problem solved right? Im also worried as I do not want it done via keyhole surgery as I have 2 very itchy scars in my belly button and do not want a 3rd! But I do not know how to put it to the gynae doctor, I have lived with this since 2010 and I'm tired of it, I know exactly when I cyst is growing and I know that in total with everything I have had roughly 6 months off work and 8 hospital visits. I am also worried as I have not had children and at this poitn in time do not want any (deep seated issues regarding pregnancy and childbirth that only a therapist could solve) however I know this will be the consultants main arguement. I need help forming a coherrent and undisputewable arguement for having surgery and getting my ovary removed. Any Ideas????????????????????
