 L salpingo oophorectomy for simple cyst & pain. 5mos later, new onset R ovarian complex cyst w/ septation, uterine fibroid & 10mm L4 lesion. Cancer?

Not necessarily: While cancer is a possibility it is not the most likely diagnosis. More testing such as doppler flow studies on ultrasound can help with the diagnosis. It may well require surgery to know for sure. Good luck. ...Read more

Cyst (Definition)

A cyst is a structure or mass that consists of a cellular lined sac. It is typically filled with fluid but may be filled with solid material. It can be congenital, traumatic, or acquired. They may develop nearly anywhere in the body and usually require complete excision for eradication or they are likely to recur. Fluid filled sacs that are not cellular lined ...Read more

Why is used salpingo -oophorectomy to treat a ruptured cyst ?

Why is used salpingo -oophorectomy to treat a ruptured cyst ?

Continued Bleeding: Removal of the tube & ovary are rarely done unless a malignancy is suspected or bleeding is not controlled with the usual measures. If a ruptured cyst occurs, bleeding is not always self-limiting and often the tube (salpingo) is removed (ectomy) with the bleeding ovary (oophor). They are attached and sometimes difficult to separate. I hope that helps. ...Read more

Yes, : Yes, if you have had an ovarian cyst in the past, then you may be at risk for having another. Ovarian cysts may not produce symptoms, and you may not even know if you have one unless it is detected during a pelvic exam. Since you are having an irregular menstrual cycle, it is prudent to see your doctor, especially if you suspect an ovarian cyst. Other signs can include bloating, abdominal or pelvic cramping, painful period, nausea/vomiting and difficulty urinating. ...Read more

I have a 'solid' 3.1 x 2.2 CM cyst on my left ovary. My doctor recommended a laparoscopic salpingo-oophorectomy. Is this the correct recommendation?

I have a 'solid' 3.1 x 2.2 CM cyst on my left ovary. My doctor recommended a laparoscopic salpingo-oophorectomy. Is this the correct recommendation?

YES: This is an appropriate recommendation. Once he looks at the cyst he may be able to save the ovary and take only the cyst, but it is best to plan for removal of the ovary. He could also find things that require more than removal of the ovary & tube. That is not so common and hopefully you won't have that experience. Good luck. ...Read more

Long-term effects after unilateral salpingo oophorectomy? Removal b/c of lg cyst, borderline tumor. Experiencing very sweaty palms/feet 2 mos post-op.

Long-term effects after unilateral salpingo oophorectomy? Removal b/c of lg cyst, borderline tumor. Experiencing very sweaty palms/feet 2 mos post-op.

No effects: If ovarian lesion found early as in a transforming cyst and salpingo oophorectomy performed rather than total hyst.bilateral s.o. then the normal remaining ovary and tube can be spared. The cure rate is very high and pt. has some ovarian function. If the remaining ovary not functioning optimally then the symptoms noted may appear ...Read more

Does a unilateral oophorectomy for painful ovarian cyst lasting over 2 years make sense?

Does a unilateral oophorectomy for painful ovarian cyst lasting over 2 years make sense?

Sure. Maybe...: I'm assuming this is for you! At 62yo, there is no reason (other than limiting risk) to just take out 1 ovary when you are "opened up." It's always a best guess that it's the ovary causing pain. Odd that you are 10 years postmenopausal and have ovarian cysts - those things should be shriveled prunes about now! I hate to stir the pot, but if it were me, I'd rip out both of those little time-bombs. ...Read more

What are the complications associated with a Salpingo-oophorectomy?

Menopause: Removing only the fallopian tubes means that the woman will not be able to get pregnant naturally. Removing the ovaries together with the fallopian tubes means that the woman will not produce sex hormones any more and therefore will go into menopause. ...Read more

What's the recoverey time for unilateral salpingo oophorectomy surgery?

What's the recoverey time for unilateral salpingo oophorectomy surgery?

1 week: After a minimally invasive so (robotic or laparoscopic), you will be groggy, and feel the worst incisional and pelvic discomfort for the first 24 hours. Motivated women may return to work after 2 to 3 days. You will continue to be achy, possibly bloated, and aware of the incisions with movements for about a week. Avoid heavy lifting and high impact activities for 2 weeks. ...Read more
