Should I still have a hard time walking, and getting up after 5 days of having my appendix removed and ovarian cyst surgery?

Depends: You did not say if your operation was laparoscopic or not - that would make a difference. Either way, you will be sore afterward for a while, but by day 5 - I would expect you to be feeling/doing better and able to get up some. If you think this is a problem, call your surgeon and get in to be checked out to make sure nothing else going on. Be well. ...Read more

If a couple is not successful after 12 months then it is time for evaluation. For female testing we start by testing for ovulation and an xray called a hsg to make sure the tubes are open. For males we do a semen analysis. ...Read more

Ovarian cyst: You don't mention which side the cyst is on but I'm thinking the left from the way you word it. We do try to remove just the cyst and safe the ovary in most situations. But that isn't always possible, so there is a small chance you may loose your ovary. Talk to this concern with the surgeon ahead of time so you know what to expect. ...Read more

Dx: ovarian cyst 3.4cm (2cm 3 days ago) endometriosis & I'm in severe pain. I've been in pain for 5days. How do I ask my gyn to surgically remove it? I had to have other cysts removed and it worked.

Plain English: The best way to ask a doctor is to say clearly what you want, which seems surprisingly difficult for many people. State clearly, let him/her discuss pros/cons with you. Severe pain and endometriosis is a good indication for surgery in many cases, but not 100%. If you feel you cannot communicate well with your doc, consider talking with another one. ...Read more
