Robotic surgery : It is possible that there was an injury to your intestines during the removal of your ovary which caused the abscess. Generally, with an abdominal abscess, you don't need to remove intestines unless there was a problem with the intestines that caused the abscess. ...Read more

I have infected ovaries and are starting to hurt during sex. I thought it went away but it's not. Might I have cancer?

I have infected ovaries and are starting to hurt during sex. I thought it went away but it's not.  Might I have cancer?

Suspicious: If you have a pelvic abscess, you should at least have been given antibiotics. Small abscesses can resolve with just antibiotics. Larger abscesses have to be drained either by surgery or by image guidance (ct or ultrasound). Waiting a month with antibiotics could be appropriate if the abscess is small. If you are not on antibiotics you should ask your dr about them. ...Read more
