I'm scheduled for a laparoscopy with possible ovary removal for a 6cm complex cyst that may have grown since my last ultrasound. I also have a 3cm cyst on the other side that isn't complex and is actually the painful one.
I did have a post on here months ago that some of you might remember. I think people thought I wasn't going to seriously pursue medical attention because I didn't want some of the invasive vaginal procedures but as I promised then I did take the situation very seriously and my doctor turned out to be completely ok with skipping the internal exams as long as he was able to assess the situation otherwise which thankfully he was.
I am only 33 so the cancer risk is relatively low but having never been put under I'm a little nervous about the regular routine parts of the procedure like anesthesia and catheters and the possibility of an epidural. Also a few days ago I developed a cold or a sinus issue that I'm being treated for and it scares me a bit that despite the severity of this illness they seem certain I'll be well enough by Wednesday morning for a surgery.
Anyway I had to come back here in hopes that you guys can alleviate some of my anxiety. Any advice?
