What causes abnormal heavy bleeding for 20days so far after laparoscopic surgery for endometriosis and ovarian cysts and having prostap injection?

What causes abnormal heavy bleeding for 20days so far after laparoscopic surgery for endometriosis and ovarian cysts and having prostap injection?

Bleeding: If you had surgery for endometriosis, that could cause your bleeding postoperatively. If you got any medications to reduce future endometriosis growth, this may cause continued bleeding as well. If you did get lupron, (leuprolide) the bleeding should diminish after 2-3 weeks and you may not have a period for 2 - 3 months. You should follow up with your doctor to discuss these symptoms. ...Read more

June 2013 I had laparoscopy to remove multiple ovarian cysts, tomorow I'm due for another one. How soon do they return? I'm in severe pain, 28yo

May not ever return: Ovarian cysts generally develop during each menstrual cycle, in young women. Frequently one cyst per cycle becomes dominant and may enlarge to the point of discomfort prior to ovulation. There are many other causes of pelvic pain (scar tissue, endometriosis, infection). There is a good chance that your cysts may play only a small role in your pain. Cyst removal/ surgery may not always be needed. ...Read more

I have an 52*57mm ovarian cyst in right ovary. Do I need laparoscopy? 4months ago I have an laparoscopy surgery in left overy

Not necessarily: In young patients such as yourself, ovarian cysts typically resolve spontaneously. A follow up ultrasound done in the post menstrual phase in 2-3 months should indicate if the cyst is persistent or not, or if has changed characteristics. You have already had laparoscopic surgery recently, you do not want to undergo another similar surgery unless absolutely necessary. ...Read more

I have 13x10x11 CM simple fluid filled ovarian cyst, normal ca-125 result I don't want to remove my ovary how can I save it? Is laparoscopy better?

Could be: I have removed many cysts like this laparoscopically while saving the ovary, but the size you give (13 cm?) is concerning. It is safe to remove this and conserve the ovary if the concern for malignancy is low; you need to discuss this with your doctor/surgeon and good luck. ...Read more

I have 6cm and 8 CM ovarian cysts. My gyn suggested laparoscopy. Can birth control pills help to reduce the size of the cysts? Other alternatives?

Unlikely: It is safe to take OCP for few months, but it is unlikely that they will help to reduce the cyst size. You have two alternatives-do nothing and wait or undergo surgery to remove the cyst. Not all cyst created equal-if cyst has complex appearance on sonogram, increasing in size, accompanied by pain, or elevated tumor markers such as CA-125 then it is more likely that woman will need surgery ...Read more

I am 28 years old. I had a ruptured ovarian cyst. I eat a lot, urinate a lot, and feel sick. My weight has dropped from 54.9 kgs to 52.5 kgs in three weeks. Is sudden weight loss after laparoscopy normal?

NOT NORMAL: Especially that nothing major was found. I would however rule out diabetes in the first place before checking other things. You lost weight, eat a lot a pee a lot. Have your blood sugar examined first. Same time one could look for thyroid function as well. If all these come out normal and the weight loss continues you need a good diagnostician... ...Read more

I was diagnosed with ovarian cyst and I had a laparoscopic surgery on Monday but now I'm bleeding I'm not sure if it's a period or not and I also have a stabbing pain underneath the belly button where the incision was made?

I was diagnosed with ovarian cyst and I had a laparoscopic surgery on Monday but now I'm bleeding I'm not sure if it's a period or not and I also have a stabbing pain underneath the belly button where the incision was made?

Not even a week: A lot of times during laparoscopic Gyn surgery a uterine manipulator is placed to assist in visualization. This can cause some spotting. The camera is typically placed through an incision in your belly button which certainly would be sore. Contact your Gyn surgeon to confirm that your symptoms are expected based on the surgery performed. ...Read more

Had laparoscopy for left ovarian cyst, now right ovary has 1.6cm cyst. Irregular period and spotting. Left kidney has 2.6cm mass. Is pregnancy possible?

Unclear: I would schedule a visit to get a better understanding of the mass located on your left kidney. This is an important issue to address before you look into a fertility evaluation. Irregular periods can indicate a lack of ovulation. Your obgyn can evaluate you for that after you finish the evaluation of the renal mass. ...Read more
