Hi there I'm new to the forum. I am 32yrs old and have had endo type symptoms for many years. 18m ago I had my first lap surgery and was diagnosed with an ovarian cyst on my left ovary. It was not removed at this point. A few months after this I was admitted to a and e with abdominal pain. I was then request admitted to the gynaecology ward (different hospital to the original sirgery) and underwenta second surgery to try and remove the cyst. It wasn't possible as it was adhered quite badly and I had a bleed during surgery. A sample was sent away and came back as an endo cyst. I have since had pain pretty much as before. Following a consult with the third Dr it has been decided to remove the ovary (I've been down the hormonal and pain control routes). I'm now terrified not of the surgery but the side affects of loosing the ovary. Does anyoneone have any experience or suggestions to share. If so how do you feel afterwards?
Thanks in advance
