That's fine.: Meaning it's not that high altitude or pressurized cabins will make kidney stones more likely to pass. However, I don't think you'd want a stone to coincidentally get stuck while trying to pass while you were in an airplane. This would give you tremendous pain and there'd be nothing you could do about it. Chance worth taking? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

How long is it normal to wait for surgery to remove an ovarian cyst with septations the size is 10 cm?
Depends: Their is not a specific amount of time. This usually would not need to be performed immediately.

Several weeks would not be uncommon depending on the surgeon's and hospital's schedule. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Found endometriosis during surgery to remove cyst and polycystic ovary,taken injection to control it but affect my QOL. Is it ok to live with it ?

Other possible treatments such as birth control pills and DepoProvera are also options that may not work as well but might have less negative impact on QOL. Hope this helps. ...Read more
