Hi Ladies. I became a member of this forum over a month ago. I wanted to share my experience in hopes that it will help anyone going through the same thing.
I had a cyst on my ovary 4.8 cm for 8 years which was being monitored. My Gyno recommended I remove it because it was growing. I agreed and knew it was the right thing to do. So about 12 days ago I had my ovaries and tubes removed. I am post menapausal.
I was so nervous about the whole thing as this was my first laparoscopic surgery.
So today was my post op and all is good.
I had no gas pains only sore on one side. I went home on the same day and was very lucky that I didn’t even need any meds. The whole thing was not as bad as I thought it would be.
All I can say is pre op be prepared. Food shop and make yourself a pot of chicken soup. Have tea and honey in the house because your throat may be sore. Get throat lozenges. Make sure your house is clean and change the sheets. Vacuum because when you get home you’ll be glad you did. A lot of women have constipation. Get stool softeners just in case.
Post op have help and if you had lap surgery walk and rest. Don’t over do it. Eat soup and drink tea. Drink water. Take it slow. You will feel better every day. Good luck and God bless you ladies and thank you for all your support. 🙏🏻🙏🏻🇺🇸🇺🇸
