I'm curious as to how long is the recovery for ovary removal and adhesion removal from bowels?

I'm curious as to how long is the recovery for ovary removal and adhesion removal from bowels?

Varies: It depends if it's done laparoscopically or via open technique, and how intense the adhesiolysis is. But, as a general rule, you should be back to full activity in about 2-3 weeks after laparoscopic procedure, and about 4-6 weeks after open procedure. Your surgeon will have his/her own recommendations, which I strongly suggest you follow. Good luck. ...Read more

Adhesions are like bands or spider webs that form around the abdominal organs/intestines. Sometimes adhesions are light and cause no problems, sometimes tremendous problems, like crazy glue in the abdomen. Can ...Read more

Postmenopause woman with growing ova cyst everything else ok. If surgery do I need complete ovary hysterectomy removed. Have adhesions from other surg?

Previous scarring: Previous surgical scar tissue (adhesions) make this a more complicated question to answer because the subject ovary may be "stuck" to other tissues like bowel, pelvic sidewall or bladder. If you don't want to return to surgery after this operation you might give consideration to hysterectomy with ovarian removal. You will need a very competent surgeon to undertake this operation- interview wisely ...Read more

I'm scheduled to have my ovary removed robotically along with bowel adhesions, endriometrioes removed how long is recovery?

Ask your surgeon. ..: Please believe me, I'm not trying to be rude but I believe it's essential that patients ask questions of their physicians/surgeons, especially when it comes to procedures & medications, before agreeing to do/take something. The physician who proposes some procedure/medication should be able to address all your concerns and in fact, should propose answers to questions you haven't yet thought about. ...Read more

Painful (swollen and tender) left ovary few days as period ending, for the past 4 cycles. Could it be from adhesions? I had 2 laparoscopies in past.

Could be: There are a lot of things it could be. Unfortunately the nerves from our ovaries, tubes, uterus run together and then they run with the nerves from our bladder, bowels and the muscles in the pelvis. So pelvic pain at the end of the cycle could be from anything in the pelvis. You should see your doctor and have a thorough exam before chalking it up to any one thing. ...Read more

Can you tell me how can your doctor diagnose you with having scar tissue or adhesions on or around your ovaries?

Can you tell me how can your doctor diagnose you with having scar tissue or adhesions on or around your ovaries?

Take a look: A doc can give a presumptive diagnosis, followed by recommendation for procedure to confirm diagnosis. Adhesion is very common and over used as a source of pain. Typically a surgery to look inside, see the adhesion, resect them or make an additional diagnosis is definitive. Okay to have a risk/benefit discussion with your doc about this. Take a friend. Be well. ...Read more

My both ovaries seen posterior and adjoining uterus and to each other? Due to adhesions. .... What is the solution

My both ovaries seen posterior and adjoining uterus and to each other? Due to adhesions. .... What is the solution

No pain no gain: If there is no pain associated with the adhesions and you are not actively trying to conceive, then sometimes leaving well enough alone is the best option as adhesions can re-form post lysis surgery. If you are attempting pregnancy, the Fallopian tubes get bound by the adhesions and preventing the fertilized egg from transporting to the uterus raising the risk of ectopic pregnancies=surgery. ...Read more

Ovarian symptoms: First, this may not be your ovary you are feeling.
