I had surgery to remove an ovary/cyst last week and the incision sites itch really bad! is there anything i can do to relieve the itching?

Ask your surgeon...: I would hate to advise you to use a otc steroid cream and have your surgeon be against that. While it may reduce the itching, it can also delay the healing. I like traumeel cream for this purpose because it is a natural topical anti-inflammatory and promotes healing. ...Read more

Sebaceous Cysts?: If these are sebaceous cysts (sort of like an overgrown pimple), they are not likely to go away unless they are cut out. Sometimes they can be injected with steroids to help them shrink, but the most definitive way is to remove them with an incision. If they don't bother you, it is ok to leave them alone, but if they bother you, see a doctor who can surgically treat them. ...Read more

I have an ovarian cyst & it's causing a lot of pain. Motrin isnt cutting it. Any other ways to relieve pain & how long does it take to go away?

Depends: There are many types of cysts, from large simple cysts to small follicular cysts to complex, heavy cysts. Birth control pills trick the brain into not stimulating the ovaries, thus less cyst formation and likely improvement in pain. If small they can resorb in time, add tylenol (acetaminophen) 2 500 mg 4 times a day and use 2 aleve 2x per day, might work better tham motrin, good luck. ...Read more

If sciatica pain was caused by free fluid from ovarian cyst, should surgery have relieved pain immediately? Or might it take a few days to resolve?

If sciatica pain was caused by free fluid from ovarian cyst, should surgery have relieved pain immediately? Or might it take a few days to resolve?

Hmm...: Well sciatica generally is not caused by anything in the abdomen, so highly unlikely the fluid from ovarian cyst caused your sciatica.
