I'm scheduling surgery to have a golfball sized cyst removed by laparoscopy from my right ovary. How long should I plan to be off of work?

Depends.: Good planning! It depends on the physical requirements of your job. Be sure to ask the surgeon. You can leave a message at his office about it and the staff can ask and then relay the information to you. Remember, there are no guarantees, you may feel better sooner than others, or you may have complicating factors that change this time period.

I had a laparoscopy done june 7th 2013 and the doctor found scar tissue on both ovaries but did not remove it. Why wasn't it removed?

Scar is old: You had a diagnostic laparoscopy for pain on june 7 2013. The doctor found scar tissue on the ovaries but did not remove the scar tissue because it would cause more damage to the ovaries. The scar tissue could be from previous infections or inflammation. The laparoscopy also allowed your doctor to look for infection or inflammation from the bowel. ...Read more

Talk to surgeon: This procedure can be done under regional anesthesia, if they do not do it laproscopically. If they do use this technique then a regional anesthesia will not be sufficient. You need to make sure you have discussed your wishes and concerns with the surgeon and anesthesiologist. Good luck. ...Read more

I had a laparoscopy and endometriosis was unable to be removed. Ovaries and ft fine. Will lupron/zoladex increase chances of pregnancy? Then do ivf?

I had a laparoscopy and endometriosis was unable to be removed. Ovaries and ft fine.  Will lupron/zoladex increase chances of pregnancy? Then do ivf?

Maybe: There is little evidence that treating endometriosis with lupron, (leuprolide) zoladex or other other gnrh agonists will help you get pregnant even after surgery even though this is commonly done. On the contrary, surgery and ivf may help. There is some recent evidence that prolonged suppression with Lupron (leuprolide) before ivf may be helpful so this likely why your dr is doing this. ...Read more
