But this is usually done for a certain reason, in many cases associated with cancer debunking operations, such as for ovarian or gastric cancer.

Usually several wks.: It is rare for an omentectomy to be performed for benign disease. It is usually carried out because of the presence of metastatic tumor such as ovarian Ca due to the presence of TGF-B. If there was cancer then chemo would be needed prior to returning to work.

Currently being considered for coblation nucleoplasty trial (cervical). Contained herniation. I'm in early 20's. Possible long term complications?
