Lack of pain:
When you feel like having sex, go ahead and give it a try. As long as it does not hurt to have sex and you are about 10 days after the surgery, you should be okay.

Things to avoid are high salt diets and drinking excessive volumes of fluids. Follow your thirst. After a few weeks an abdominal binder can help but ask your surgeon about this first. Start walking and return to exercise once your surgeon gives you the green light. ...Read more

I have a cyst that was 4cm a year and a half ago. It grew to 10cm and then shrunk to 8.4 in 2 months. OB GYN gave two choices. Watch and wait or laparoscopic cystectomy. What should I do? Cyst is complex hypoechoic (possible endometrioma)
Won't go away on own: Only you can make the decision; however, something to think about is this: If it has persisted for 1.5 years, its unlikely to go away on its own. The difference in size in 2 months from 10cm to 8.4cm may just be the way the ultrasound measurements were taken. It may not be shrinking. I would recommend removing an 8+ cm cyst that is persistent after observation. Best wishes! ...Read more
Removal of bladder:
A radical cystectomy, usually used to treat cancer, is a complete removal of the bladder, parts of the nearby urethra, surrounding lymph nodes and surrounding organs.
This may include the prostate in men. In women, this may include the uterus, cervix, fallopia tubes, and part of the vagina. ...Read more
Depressed: The scar will be low in the abdomen above the pubis, much like a c-section scar. Most likely it will be depressed. Occasionally it may be a thin line but to minimize a scar fine sutures and a good tension relieving subcutaneous layer of slowly absorging sutures needs to be used. If poor healing, bad tension and or an infection result the scar will be wide and need revision. ...Read more

Don't worry: I haven't had a cystectomy but I've done hundreds. If that's all that is needed, you will have a complete recovery. Should the "cyst" be a tumor of some kind, it might require removal of the ovary. I don;t know your age or circumstances but you should do well. ...Read more
When to return: That is definitely a question for the doctor who did your procedure. What did they say? You can call them if you don't know. I wish you the best. ...Read more
Why oophorectomy instead of cystectomy abd it neasured 6.2✖️4.4cm last week its probably getting smaller anyway?
Depends on age/size:
SOmetimes if a large cyst is encountered and you are concerned about a malignancy, you take the ovaries out to get a pathologist to review it as a whole. If you take bits and pieces out, you can spread malignancy in your abdomen and worsen prognosis
In younger women, sometimes, preservation of the ovaries is attempted because risk of ovarian cancer is low and there is need for ovaries for fertilit ...Read more
Perhaps: Chemotherapy following bladder cancer removed by radical cystectomy may be advised depending on the stage of the cancer.

I have recently had a cystectomy on monday and I have been bleeding since wed and now I have diarrhea is this normal?
If I had bilateral dermatoid cystectomy, but still have both ovaries, will I have trouble with fertility? Is there a way of knowing?
Cystectomies: The main risk from multiple cystectomies is adhesion ("scar") formation around the ovaries. You may not have any at all, or it can sometimes be very significant. With cystectomies, sometimes pieces of normal ovary are removed or damaged too. I'd think positive for now, you may have no problems at all. Laparoscopy is the only way to evaluate for adhesions. ...Read more

Hello sir...m Dr. Neha BPT want to ask u dat can I do aerobics after 6yrs of surgury of ovarian cystectomy (removal of 1ovry)coz I feel pain during exs.
Excellent: Ovarian cystectomy only removes the "cyst" portion of the ovary. The remaining portion of the ovary still has viable follicles to make eggs for conception. ...Read more
Difficult cyst: Sometimes the findings at surgery are more complicated that what was expected. The doctor may have encountered dense adhesions so that tissue planes were distorted and removal of the ovary may have been safer than removal of the cyst. The cyst may have replaced the ovary and been stuck to it so the only way to fully remove the cyst was by removing the ovary. Or perhaps cancer was suspected. ...Read more
