I need a laposcopic done for ovarian cyst. They are very large. My insurance is saying they are a pre exsiting con. What should I do to get surgery?

Very complicated: Every insurance plan makes up its own rules. You may be able to wait 6 months and then be covered. You may have to change plans. New health laws may make pre-existing condition exclusions illegal. If that passes in the country, in your state, or with your plan, then you may be in luck. This is a constantly frustrating issue, but you may have to play the game in order to have your procedure done. ...Read more

Bleeding: If you had surgery for endometriosis, that could cause your bleeding postoperatively. If you got any medications to reduce future endometriosis growth, this may cause continued bleeding as well.

I have a laparoscopic surgery to have my uterus detached from the fascia from previous c-section. What is the average recovery time on this procedure?

I have a laparoscopic surgery to have my uterus detached from the fascia from previous c-section. What is the average recovery time on this procedure?

Very quickly: If all the physician is doing is taking down scar tissue (which is what it sounds like) then you will have a few small (1cm) incisions which will heal very quickly. I'm guessing you'll be up doing your normal activities of life within a day or so, and you'll be pain free after 2-3 weeks. Every woman is different, but this is a minimally invasive surgery. Good luck! ...Read more

Laprascopic ovarian cyst removal with ablation. I have a cruise scheduled 17 days post op. Am i crazy? Recovery time? Plane ride?!?

Fine: You'll be fine. You probably won't be on any pain meds at all, assuming no complications with your surgery. Most important, because you're 42, is just to make sure that you prevent any blood clot by moving around frequently. Get up, if you can, every hour or so on your plane ride for circulation. Check out exercises you can do with your legs while sitting on plane to prevent blood clot. ...Read more

Barring any complications or unusual findings at surgery, you should be able to go home same or next day and resume normal activity in one week. Ask your surgeon for specific details. ...Read more
