Hello again all. Welp, surgery was last Friday. Refresher, I was the silly patient who planned to return to work on Monday after a Friday ovary/cyst removal. Bah-hah-hah, boy was I wrong! I think my age (54) probably played a lot into it. The pain has been significant, but I have only taken 3 oxycodone and 2 800 mg ibuprofens. Just not a fan of meds; not trying to be a hero. Surgery went well. Immediate-read frozen section of cyst was negative; waiting on full biopsy results. Was supposed to also have a D&C but surgeon couldn't dilate the cervix; said too much scar tissue. Does anyone have experience with that issue? I have always been healthy -- no STDs, etc. just history of cysts on cervix, so maybe that caused it. 4 incisions, of which the largest (belly-button) has been the worst. The other 3 don't hurt at all. Thanks to everyone who has chatted with me; it has helped greatly. Best wishes to all who are battling issues MUCH worse than just a silly ovarian cyst. Hugs to all.
