Am due to have a laparotomy next week to remove a 15cm ovarian cyst and have division of adhesions. I had a laparoscopy in July last year and have been taking Prostap but my cysts have grown back regardless and the largest is so big this time that they cant see what it is attached to. My consultant says that 9 times out of 10 they don't need to remove the ovaries but Im wondering how they go about things if they do have to remove them? will they wake me for consent? And does anyone know about egg freezing. I desperately want to do anything i can not to be left infertile.
