    9x9cm cyst with dermoid tumor inside.

    No symptoms, found accidentally during prophylactic yearly check ups.

    Removed ovary saving

    (all of ovary saved since located on the side of ovary, wound ends stiched up after cyst removal; upon ultrasound post surgery looks normal size e.g. 3x3cm.)

    No complications, bit 'inside' pain for weeks of course since it was a wound inside.

    ovulations coming on within weeks.

    dermoid cyst on right ovary was 5cm (about the size of a lime). Laparascopic surgery; my ovary was saved. Recovery before I could walk around without feeling tired was 3-4 weeks. Surgery was 2 months ago so I still feel pain on my right side.

      Hi Margie,

      Yes my entire ovary was saved and as far as I know it is functional. I say that because I haven't tried to get pregnant, so I may not truly know until then. Honestly, I'm worried I'll have trouble when I'm ready for kids.  My doctor told me the surgery was successful, so I'm trusting that.

    I had mine found after I got pain a week ago in my stomach and left leg during a emergency ultrasound.They said it was one 10cm cyst but there were two during the surgery I got the day after bcuz the pain didn't go away. They didn't have to remove a ovary which is good.
