    Sorry to hear this.  You should contact your GP - you could have an infection.  I am due to have ovarian cyst removed, probably via csection cut, so I am interested to hear how you are doing.  Hope things settle soon for you.

    I am five weeks post op after having ovaries removed by c section, I am just beginning to feel human again but have days when I still feel tired. I still find it uncomfortable when I go to the loo but it is getting better all the time, I did as I was told for the first four weeks but back doing chores now but nothing to strenuous. Just take it easy and you will get there.
